Fun Facts About Yusi Hu:
- What is your favorite quote?
“When nothing seems to help, I go and look at a stonecutter hammering away at his rock, perhaps a hundred times without much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the hundred and first blow, it will split into two, and I know that it was not that last blow that did it, but all that had gone before.” -Jacob A. Riis
- What inspires you?
Everyone around me. I am more of a listener in a social environment, I listen to the people around me, accept their ideas and share mine with them. I enjoy the sharing like this and whenever they are challenging me and my thinking, I treat it as a learning process. I have to say they made me a better version of myself.
- What is your favorite movie and why?
My favorite movie is The Sixth Sense (1999). Ultimately, The Sixth Sense has a universal theme around life and death, but ultimately the movie's is about accepting help and learning to trust another person. I think the Sixth Sense is a guide on how to turn darkness into light, pain into healing, and trauma into love.
