During my time in the UK, I thought that everything about Western culture was great and superior to what we had in China. However, once I was back, I gradually discovered the wealth of our own culture, of what we have traditionally in China. When I grew up after the Cultural Revolution, all this had been destroyed or hidden, there was nothing to look at. It is only now that these things start to come back. / Kezhen Wang
