Interview of Ms. Lifang Dong by Ms. Bessie Du for ImMigrant (异乡人)
Updated: Jul 29, 2021
On July 18, 2021 Ms. Lifang Dong (Anna), President of Silk Council Association and Managing Partner of Dong & Partners international law firm was interviewed by Ms. Bessie Du, a Chinese-American EU journalist.
The interview was published in the Podcast异乡人 (Yi Xiang Ren) that brings you stories of immigrants, by immigrants – for anyone who finds resonance and inspiration. Ms. Lifang Dong was interviewed as a representative of the second generation of Chinese in Italy. Her multicultural life experience proved decisive in her integration path in Italy and an added value in her private and professional life.
According to Ms. Bessie Du: “More than 50 million Chinese are currently living overseas, in every corner of the world, each with a story of their own. Chinese immigrants are traditionally known for their grit and perseverance, but the younger generation are also tech savvy and globally connected. Our stories reflect both intercultural experiences and trans-generational perspectives. They are personal and emotional, as well as rational and analytical. Enjoy the stories shared by those who left their birthplaces and built homes in faraway places, stories of their life journeys — their joys and losses, their hopes and aspirations. These stories are about identity, culture, race, perspectives, and above all, HUMANITY and COMPASSION!”.
