Introductory Profile: About Guowei Lu

Guowei Lu is an American citizen who lives in Austin, Texas with her husband and her two children. When she was only 27, she immigrated to America from China with her husband, searching for a better life. Leaving her family and her whole life behind, she had to work harder and longer than everyone else to succeed in a new place.

She had to face the difficulties of overcoming the language barriers as a waitress, while having to help support both herself and her husband with the little pay she received. Working as a waitress was very tiring, but she continued to work hard, and eventually, all that perseverance and hard work paid off.
