Introductory Profile: About Hui Liu

My name is Jason Ren and I interviewed my mom Hui Liu. She was born on March 23, 1969 in a city called Lan Zhou. Hui is a biostatistician working at PPD. She came to America to attend graduate school at UT. I first got the idea of interviewing my mom after she told me a story during Chinese New Year about what it was like going to elementary school in China. I interviewed her about what life was like growing up in Communist China and how the government affected her and her family.

During the interview, my mom talks about various topics like the Tiananmen Square Massacre in Beijing, the things that she was taught in elementary school, and how her parents participated in the Cultural Revolution. She talks a lot about how living in China was oppressive. She didn't have a lot of the freedoms that we take for granted here in the US. Her story is one about the struggle of daily life in Communist China and how she looks back upon it, now that she has been living in the US for 17 years.
