In 2001, I fled China to Australia with a 3-month business visa after being tortured nearly to death in Beijing female labor camp for practicing Falun Gong.
In 2003, I obtained a refugee visa from the Australian government.
In 2011, I came to the U.S. with a journalist visa;
In 2019, I obtained an EB-1 visa (granted to foreign nationals who can demonstrate their extraordinary ability in the sciences, arts, education, business, or athletics through sustained national or international acclaim) from the U.S. government.
However, I didn't feel much joy for being recognized as “an outstanding person”. What concerns me more is this: When can I go back to China without a visa? I’d rather celebrate the end of the persecution of Falun Gong.
