Girl, 11, Chases Dream in World of Kunqu Opera
Yang You performs Kunqu Opera in Kunshan, east China's Jiangsu Province, June 26, 2015. The 11-year-old girl lost her mother when she was six and her father passed away two years later. The misery turns her into a timid and introverted girl. However, she fell in love with Kunqu Opera, a traditional Chinese performing art with a history of 600 years, by chance and became confident and more outgoing. She won a gold medal at a national children's opera competition and kept on chasing her dream of being a professional artist of Kunqu Opera.[Xinhua/Yang Lei]
