Jiaoying was born during China’s one-child policy. For those unfamiliar with this policy, it was basically a policy implemented in China between 1979 and 2015, which limited families to just one child.

Jiaoying was born at home because her parents did not want to go to the hospital and face the shame of having a baby girl as their only child.

She was literally almost thrown into a dumpster. This was the harsh reality of life in China at the time.

Summers grew up in China at a time when life was very tough.

Eventually, she decided to travel to America, studying at the University of Kentucky when she was 18 years of age.
