The 2015 essay was a response to the question “what law would you change and why?” In Ms. Xu’s thoughtful response, she indicated that she would change the laws that effectively prevent the free exercise of religion in China. Her essay pointed to the religious persecution of Christians as well as the way in which these laws cause issues larger societal issues and marginalize many people as major problems that need to be addressed.

  •     Kaiser Lashkari – Executive chef and owner of Himalaya Restaurant in Southwest Houston.
