Sofia, Li Shasha, is from Mudanjiang, in Heilongjiang Province in the northeastern part of China, what most westerners refer to as Manchuria. The first time I talked with Sofia, she told me she wanted to be a war correspondent, but first she thinks she should join the army to show her parents that she is strong. Sofia was very upset when the Olympic torch relay was disrupted in Europe. She does not understand why so many westerners are against China.
