— by Nicolette Salmi: In an age of intolerance and prejudice, fresh new voices like Jiani Liu’s are at the forefront of fighting for cross-cultural understanding. As relations between the United States and China slowly unravel after decades of diplomacy, the tense standoff between the two countries has intensified, fostering a new era of bias, misconceptions, and scapegoating. Jiani Liu, the driven millennial set on changing the world one column at a time, fights back against this lack of empathy between the two countries in her debut book, Across The Sea
