Bend, Not Break by Ping Fu

Keeping with my decision to read books for Women’s History Month by or about influential women or women from different backgrounds than myself, Bend, Not Break was an inspiring choice.
Ping Fu was raised in China at the onset of the cultural revolution. Separated from her family, raised in persecution, child labor, and responsible for her 4 year old sister from the age of 8, she was exiled from China at the age of 25 with only $80 in traveler’s checks and 3 English words in her repertoire. She later became the founder and CEO of Geomagic, responsible for some of the biggest advancement in matching 3D scanning software with 3D printing.
I highly recommend this book. Not only will it open you to another culture, but you’ll be inspired by the power of perseverance and kindness.
