I was born in Biyang, Henan, China. Biyang is a small town in the middle of China. I grew up there until my 16 years old. When I was 16 years old, I passed the National College Entrance Examination. Fortunately, I was admitted to Tsinghua University as the top 200/1 million students in Henan Province. I went out of the small town, and began to get in touch with a larger world.
