In this interview with Synergy founder Carolyn Custis James, you will meet Chai Ling.
Commander-in-chief of student protesters at Tiananmen Square in 1989, Ling quickly found herself on China's "most wanted" list, forcing her to flee China and eventually to make her home in the U.S. After graduating from Harvard Business School, she founded Jenzabar a leading provider of software and services to colleges and universities.
What is breathtaking about her story (and of particular relevance to us) is how Ling evolved as a leader against all odds. Not only did she overcome cultural conditioning and family pressure that would have held her back from answering God's call on her heart, she emerged as a global leader, business entrepreneur, passionate follower of Jesus, and courageous social activist—taking on the Chinese government's One Child Policy no less with her AllGirlsAllowed organization. And she did it solo and in a foreign country!
