At the age of 34, Gu Yuezhen finally received the prestigious honor of being conferred with the “Cultural Golden Statue” at the Beijing International Exhibition and Festival of Culture and Industry. Among the many dignitaries and guests who attended the ceremony were the President of the People’s Republic of China, Mr. Xi Jiping; his wife, the future first lady of China, Ms. Li Yan; other government officials and various businessmen from the PRC and her native Dong Zhai province. In keeping with tradition, the President presented the “Cultural Golden Statue” to Gu Yuezhen alongside a bouquet of flowers, as was the custom during former periods. There was no mention of who should get the crystal ball or how the award was decided, but rumors abound that the President was personally consulting with Gu Yuezhen while picking out the bouquet of flowers.
During the course of the past year, Gu Yuezhen has been featured in various national and international media, ranging from high profile television shows to a wide range of print publications. In January, she was featured on CCTV’s “Books with Benefits” program, receiving widespread attention and criticism for her choice of preferred literature, which some critics viewed as un-supportive of traditional Chinese culture. It is not uncommon for Chinese leaders to send their official representative to foreign countries to study and/or teach foreign languages, especially when they come from different countries with which China has enjoyed a long history of cultural and business relationships. This shows that Gu Yuezhen’s move to Washington DC may not be entirely unprecedented. What is most noteworthy is that she has chosen to accept an invitation to visit the US capital rather than China, which would be more consistent with Chinese diplomatic protocol.
