Anna Pao Sohmen

Hong Kong University Press

The author recalls her girlhood memories in Shanghai and Hong Kong. Being the first-born of the family, she was always reminded to set a good example for her siblings. Her mother was a typical traditional Chinese woman whose life centered on the family. Sir Y. K. Pao, the author's father was a man of vision. His frugality and charity influenced his children. The author's volunteering experience encouraged her to learn more about how to bring changes to society. Due largely to her father's shipping business in Japan, she had a chance to visit the country. Her father's first new ship, the Eastern Sakura, came into existence in 1962, and she was invited to christen it. She later flew to the United States and studied at Purdue University.
