Mulan; Bold steps in action
It is possible that you are still juggling with the idea of Studying Chinese. It is also possible like many young people you have not identified a specific niche you want to explore further and identify with, probably make your profession. Don’t worry, all of us face this problem once in a while, as I rode the bus today on my way to work, I couldn’t help but think of a beautiful Chinese story of a little girl who won a war, her name was Mulan.
As legend would have it, Mulan was a girl who was beloved by her father and family for the role she had played as an individual ad for all she had grown up to be. Her father an old retired army general retired home to rest, with the scars of war still fresh in his mind and memory and all he wanted to do was live out the rest of his years in the company of his family. He taught his daughter Mulan how to ride a horse and how to use a sword.
As fate would have it, Mulan’s father was called back to war, and the courageous girl on seeing her father’s impending demise if he went to the war, instead took his place, by stealing his armor and enlisting. The girl went on to win many wars as part of the army up to the point she was recognized by the emperor himself. It sounds comical at first but the story unravels many truths despite the main theme of the equality of gender.
The legend inspired me to push on, to brave life and all its dimensions and take on anything I believe I can achieve. It should also serve as an inspiration to anyone looking to take a brave new step into the unknown. In conclusion, why don’t you take that bold step and decide to learn Chinese today?
