She remembers watching the rainfall on lotus leaves as a child. She loved to see the drops of water roll across the lotus leaf without leaving any trace as a child.

Her savings of PS 1,800 earned from overtime was enough to start her business. Her company has expanded in size and now employs over 60,000 people. On March 18, 2015, her company was made public, and she was officially named the richest woman of China with 78.07 Yuan per share.
