4. Problems We Had To Overcome
We wanted to go to Ms. Chang Ying – Chuan’s house to admire the paintings which were drawn by her and her daughter, Hsin – Yi. However, Ms. Chang’s house is located at the mountain in Xizhi District, the path is very far, and we were afraid to disturb Ms. Chang, so we gave up the meeting plan with her. In the coming future, we hope that our school can consult with Ms. Chang directly, ask her to handle an art exhibition in Wuxing Elementary School, and introduce the life story of her and her daughter. Before that, we are glad to invite Ms. Chang to Wuxing Elementary School to accept our interview.
