In the many years that I have been a part of the United Nations family and have representatives, you are amongst the few of the most notable individuals that I have encountered. I genuinely believe you are a major asset to your country for your authentic charm, and tireless efforts.
You are one of the most dynamic ladies that I have met, and you certainly showed me a side of China that I have never seen before. Thank you for your friendship, your understanding, and most of all for your love and kindness.
