    How to Maintain Workout Routine When Travel in Summer

    This post is partnered with adidas, but all opinions are my own. Summer season starts and it marks the busiest travel time for most folks. Kids are out of school, the weather is amazing so there are so many people taking road trips, camping or flying somewhere far to explore the unknown. No matter if you are on the road visiting family, taking a vacation or a business trip, maintaining your regular workout routine can be a challenge! Beach Run You ever said, “I’d love to get in shape, but I travel too much?” That was me before. Any time I had traveled in the past, I abandoned my workouts…

    Susan G Komen 3-Day Walk Fundraiser Party Recap

    Get What You Want || Women’s Empowerment Starts On A Personal Level

    What is your definition of women’s empowerment?  For me, it is about women being free to be our independent selves. Being treated equally by others in all aspects of life without a gender label. As a woman, I understand I must acquire empowerment myself rather than having it given to me by others. But are we focusing on empowering only certain areas of a woman’s life (like our careers or family life)? Are we limiting ourselves? What about our empowerment in the bedroom and intimate relationships? Women have been socialized to put their needs second to their partner’s needs, both inside and outside of the bedroom. For me, women’s empowerment…

    Empowering Women with Natori || I am Good Enough

    This post is partnered with Natori. But all opinions are my own. I used to hate my body and dislike myself for a long time. The memory of my mom yelling at me saying how ugly I am and showing me her discussed face seemed to haunt me for a long time. Then I turned 13 years old, my period came and my boobs started to grow. I got yelled at for being a dirty women now. My mom was super ashamed of my body because my boobs were bigger than the average Chinese girls. She made me hunch over so I can make my boobs appear smaller. She yelled…

    I am thrilled to share with you this amazing news! My fundraiser for The Susan G. Komen 3-Day® walk in Michigan this August to fight again breast cancer has been fully funded!!! What a journey!

But I didn’t join the fundraiser group because my husband just lost his job. Fast forward to about 4 years ago. My late husband was diagnosed with skin cancer. When you have lived with cancer, most people become more aware…

    She Breaks Barrier || Celebrating International Women’s Day With adidas

    This post is partnered with adidas, but all opinions are my own. I am celebrating this International Women’s Day by acknowledging myself as an immigrant woman, a widow, and a boss lady who has broken many barriers in pursuing my dream life. No matter the obstacles and setbacks I continue to do what I love. Being born and raised in the small village of Northern China, it didn’t just mean I was born in poverty, it also meant I had to fight for just about everything. I had to fight for food, for shelter, for the chance to go to school, and for the chance to decide who I wanted…

    Please Vote For Me to be a SEEN Changemaker 2018

    I am a dreamer, a dream chaser, and a changemaker. I struggled with poverty and family abuse for many years. In my young adulthood, I was in an abusive relationship for five years. After I ran away to Shanghai in search of a new life, I fought with hunger until I was 24 years old. I went from being jobless, to a front desk clerk, to a sales person, to an area sales director, training assistant, training manager, and finally a HR manager. After years of hard work, I finally turned my life around. Then, I fell in love and moved to America. After ten years of being happily married,…
