Author set to visit MCC-Longview Oct. 9

October 9, 2013 

Bambi Shen, author of the memoir “The Uncrushable Rose,” will visit MCC-Longview at 2:30 p.m. Oct. 9 inside the school’s Campus Center to discuss her life.

Shen is a Chinese-born Kansas Citian who remembers what it was like to grow up as a female in a male-dominated culture. She has overcome racial discrimination and domestic violence and brings a cross-cultural understanding to life as she moved from concentration camp to free woman. She hopes to empower women everywhere by revealing her experiences and how they have shaped the woman she is today.

Her complex roots can be traced to her birth as a female child of a Chinese diplomat in French Indochina. She uses her experiences to call women to unite in challenging and supporting each other by shattering the “glass ceiling,” to patronize and support one another’s businesses and work together to help each other succeed.

Shen makes her home in Kansas City with her husband and two international students.
