My inspiration came from a group of children in Sun Village, Beijing, whose parents were jailed for violating criminal law. Isolating from their parents at a young age led them to live independently and strive to escape from social prejudice. The mature minds and deep thoughts of those children in Sun Village made me ashamed of my obedience and dependency on my parents. Now is time for me to step out of the comfort circle my parents has drawn for me, to fight against my fate like those children.
