“If a thing’s worth doing, it is worth doing well.”—Chinese Proverb
Tong Chen, the Director of the Chinese Academy, embodies this philosophy to the fullest extent possible.
Tong Chen was born in Fujian, China, where she spent the entirety of her childhood. Later on, she attended Xiameng University, which is also located in Fujian, China. While there, she studied economics and linguistics, concentrating predominantly in English language and literature studies.
