"I consider myself to be quite lucky after I #immigrated to the U.S. For some Chinese people, however, it is also what makes me different. The social environment for females in #China is rather hostile compared to the U.S. Even though I do not longer live in China, I still care about the country I grew up. China is still a developing country, and its has many flaws. When I was a Chinese #citizen, I often complained about the negative aspects that surrounded me, and nobody batted an eye. But somehow, just because I am no longer a #Chinese citizen, I have to praise the greatness of China, or if not, I'd be attacked. I posted the reason I immigrated in a thread on #Zhihu, (a Chinese question-and-answer website with around 69 million users), and many people said negative things towards me. They called me bad names, and even ask me to stop speaking Chinese, just because I had left China. But I’m a proud Chinese and I always will be. The best thing my #culture has given me is myself. I’m pretty happy about my life. If I was offered a chance to go back in time and fix anything, I wouldn’t. I have made mistakes, but those mistakes made me who I am today, just as growing up in China gave me the characteristics I have."
