Who’s in FRONT? Pearl Fu

Pearl Fu

Pearl Fu, a native of China, grew up wealthy, privileged and part of a prominent family, but because of her humor and humility is often thought to have been raised poor. Her story is in the September 2010 "Immigrants" issue of Valley Business FRONT.

Valley Business FRONT is the monthly magazine for in-depth business news in the Roanoke Valley and the New River Valley of Virginia. You're invited to read moreFRONT and to follow Valley Business FRONT on Twitter, @vbFRONT.

  1. Pearl was looking for diversity and she got it. I don’t think we can censor the entire world because somebody’s hyper sensitivity is offended. I have an ex-wife who is an observer of an Eastern religion that uses the same symbol as a sign of peace and harmony, and though I doubt this cro-magnon had that in mind, I suspect it’s better to concentrate on Pearl’s goodness than the implied disgrace of the swastika.

  2. I was quite moved by the juxtaposition and for me, too, it is the image of Pearl’s bright face that lingers. Thank you for your comment, Dan.
