Hello and welcome to Culture Express. I’m Yin Chen in Beijing. In the next thirty minutes, I’ll give you the story of my personal and professional background from China to the United States. But before we get started, here’s a quick look at what’s coming up…

--Yin Chen is born in Beijing, but emigrates to the United States at the age of five.

--After graduating from Cornell University, majoring in Economics and International Relations, Yin embarks on a journey back to her roots in China.

--A 21-year old teaching at the China Foreign Affairs University? You don’t want to be late for this lesson.

--And on today’s “List,” we take a look at the CCTV host who travels the country with Travelogue and settles on the set of Culture Express.

This episode of Culture Express? Only in your dreams, Yin.

But then again, what happens when dreams do come true? For me, they did. My strong passion for all things language and culture-oriented, combined with zeal for television, has led me towards a job I could only envision in my sleep. Although reality is not perfect, sometimes life jostles you around and the pieces just happen to fall into the right places: today a disaster, maybe tomorrow a miracle. In the meantime, my fingers will be crossed and my feet will march onward.
