Season 4 Episode #3- How can this be...the rest of my life!?

Part 3 of a Special Summer Series from Shanghai: In Context with Anita Xu: “How can this be...the rest of my life!?”

If you’d invested almost your entire adult life training to be a professional landscape designer, you’d landed at your dream job. But a few years later, you looked around your workplace and you discovered something that would forever change your idea of what is a good life or what is a good career.

What would you do?

That’s what happened to Lu Xiaoya (卢小雅) 3 years ago, when she was 27 years old.

In this Episode 3 “How can this be... the rest of my life !?” Anita talks with Lu about that life-changing moment, and what she did next.

Lu will tell her story in Mandarin Chinese.
