Born in TianMen, near ZhangJiaJie (think of the movie Avatar), HuBei province, she became interested in the guitar and started lessons at age six, with a penchant for heavy metal !

This montage also includes 'Angel of Darkness' by Andy James (age 9; PinXi, not Andy ;). Don't miss it ... Her favorite quote : Believe in yourself.
