About Founder

Gary Qiu

Gary Qiu was born in a village on the border of Guangdong and Guangxi provinces. The village was once one of the poorest villages in the area. In the early days of the founding of the People’s Republic, we experienced a great famine. Many people died of hunger (including my great-grandfather). After the death of my great-grandfather, my great-grandmother supported my grandfather by working for the landlord’s family. My grandfather and my great-grandfather had died of hunger. Mother worked in the landlord’s house because she had a dream since childhood: he hoped that he could own the same house as the landlord’s. In order to realize this dream, my grandpa often works for others. Many of his jobs are those that others are unwilling to do. My grandpa has no complaints and never finds fault with others. So he has a great reputation for helping others. Many people in the area turn to him for help. After more than ten years of hard work, he finally bought a house from a neighbour’s house in 1938 (on the eve of World War II). From then on, he bought a house from a neighbour’s house. When Grandpa arrived, he took my father and aunts into the house they had dreamed of. My father is my grandfather’s eldest son (grandfather has two sons). Grandpa hopes that my father can grow up to be a pillar of the family. from family tradition, Gary has a big picture of military action and seeking an outcome.
