Zhang Lijia

When Zhang Lijia came to visit, the first thing i thought was that it’s going to be really boring. I never heard of her either and for me a memoir doesn’t sound like a fascinating story. but then she talked about her life and how her dream to become a writer shattered by her mothers decision to work in the factory. She also talked about how she started learning english and quit in the factory and become a writer. I never thought that speaking a different language can change that much in someones life. I was also impressed that she didn’t give up her dream, even if all the people around told her to do so. It was a little bit sad that she had to leave earlier and we couldn’t meet her in german class and ask some more questions.
