JesMin's name was derived from my uncle Jessie and my aunt Luming's names. Typical of folks based in the province. Simple but full of hope.
I saw this girl's rise from the "ashes" so to speak - from what could have been a difficult life with someone who was not in any position to make her happy. The path accompanying the letting go was painful. But in the end, she chose the righteous, less complicated but challenging embrace to a new beginning.
Congratulations Jes, you did it. Now a woman of fine substance, discovering the world through a well paying job with sights and travel perks. Wowee.
