Mothers Lead : A Memoir
"At the Very Beginning of Life, I Escaped Death Twice.”
As a second girl born to a family in China in the 1980’s, my Life was mandated to be terminated, my illegal birth evidence of a crime, and my survival a statistical improbability.
To immigrate to the United States as a young girl
To have great fortune to pursue an Education
To have opportunity for a Career in Silicon Valley
To have a voice to write my Story now
These too, are great Statistical Improbabilities
What’s wrong with this picture?
Why are basic human rights a statistical improbability simply because I was born female?
I wrote this book to spark purposeful dialogue and ignite action for positive change.
To illuminate real stories, real people who need Us to care.
Help me hold the torch.
Use Our Collective Power to extend our good fortune for All Others.
Let’s beat the statistics.
