Under the scorching sun, a small girl with a large backpack on her shoulders set her laptop on a shared bike and knocked out words, ignoring the trash bins around her. This is the scene captured in a cell phone photo of an Help Therapeutics colleague in 2017. Emily was working on an early-stage iPSC clinical translation project.
Today, Emily is the leader of the Clinical Translation Center, leading a group of young people to develop product registration project plans, submit drug registration documents, and resolve or provide feedback on problems that arise during the registration process to ensure that all aspects of registration are carried out smoothly.
In five years, this girl who worked by the dumpster has been upgraded to a baby mama. In addition to her enthusiasm and dedication to her work, Emily has also used this energy to bring up a baby. One morning in 2022, Emily read a picture book with her son before leaving for work and walked around the neighborhood park. Emily has been doing one hour of quality companionship every morning since she became a mother. As usual, Emily was the first one to arrive at work in the department today.
The only thing that has changed is her identity. The only thing that has remained the same is her passion and insistence on work and life. She is still the same girl she once was.
"In our work, we often encounter this problem: how to balance work and life? In the words of the famous poet, to sum up, it is: since the choice of a distant place, it will only care about the wind and rain. If you carry it through, it will be over, and only after the rain can you see the rainbow." Emily said, "Transformation is like a long-distance run, and it is valuable in persistence."
