I met Mr. Zhang on the streets of Lijiang City and we had a great conversation about his daughter. Here is what resonated with me and what was important to him:

“You can call me Mr. Zhang and my daughter Little Zhang. I work at a souvenir store in Lijiang Old Town. I don’t make a lot of money, but I hope that my daughter can go to a good school and think for herself. It’s hard to care for her and also run my store. I do it all for her future.”
