Ye Mingzi, granddaughter of veteran Chinese Communist general Ye Jianying, chairman of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress from 1978 to 1983, just got married - on Sept 9.

"In China we call this '999', and it's a special and auspicious date," she writes in an e-mail to China Daily.

Ye was born in Beijing in 1979. She went to grade school and college in Hong Kong and later, Britain. However, she and her family spent most of their holidays in Beijing and Guangzhou.

While she remembers the beauty of her childhood well, modern Beijing and China still astonish her. "Today, I can look and see the same China of my childhood ... But also woven into that picture is the new China, which is striking and impressive," she writes.

It's not just the modern buildings and transport that impress her, but also the vitality in China. "There is so much energy and enthusiasm. There is the feeling that anything is possible," she writes.

As a child of a political family, Ye says she has gained a sense of mission and duty, and an inner strength to carry it out regardless of obstacles. Her family moved to Hong Kong when she was 7, and at the age of 13, she went to Britain to study. "My road through British-led Hong Kong and then Britain was filled with challenges," she recalls.

Ye was seen as the little immigrant girl from China when she moved to Hong Kong in the late 1980s. The other children looked down on her as undereducated and unsophisticated.

"At the time I only spoke Mandarin, while everyone else spoke Cantonese and English. Kids can be cruel to other kids, and it really hurt.

"Some of the same treatment occurred in Britain when I was a teenager. But like any young fighter, I turned it into motivation.

"I have no ill will toward the past but am happy to see that old prejudices against mainland Chinese have changed. These days people everywhere are so interested in China and our people."

Talking about her grandfather Ye Jianying, she says there was a strong connection between them. She can recall every detail of the times she spent with her grandfather.

"(The story) of his battles, along with that of the other generals, is filled with risk and sacrifice. Few Westerners realize the challenge and tough odds these revolutionaries faced. Out-manned and out-gunned and out-financed, their story of victory is one of the greatest stories never told in the West."

The photos of General Ye on the team that welcomed US President Richard Nixon in 1972 give her great pride.

"For me, my grandfather is both a real man and a legend. I am just so honored to be his granddaughter and to have grown up in his house, with him and my parents," Ye says.

"I was lucky to be the small child in the house and he showered me with attention. He passed on to the next world as a very happy and contented man on my 7th birthday, Oct 22, 1986."

Chasing her dreams, Ye is now a fashion designer of couture evening gowns and wedding dresses. She studied at Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London, and her graduate creations were regarded as one of the best collections of the college. She worked at the famous Japanese fashion company Isse Miyake. Now, she has started a high-end Studio Regal in Beijing, dealing in exclusive fashion wear.

She also travels to the United States and Europe frequently, which puts her in touch with international trends and familiarizes her with world-famous designers and style icons.

"The fashion industry is also growing in China," she says. "But it has not yet reached top international standards for design and style.

"I look forward to a time when there will be many well-known Chinese fashion designers and style leaders. We already see this happening in painting and sculpture," she says.

Ye does not think her famous family has had much influence on her work. But she does admit that it has a greatly positive impact on her. Her family never said no to Ye when she decided to work as a fashion designer.

"For example, I never think about how I can make the most money. Rather, I think about how I can contribute and how I can improve myself," she says.

"In my design and painting, I don't think about whether something will sell or not. I think about creating the best beauty I can, and only that," she says.

"I try to please my own eye. I have the confidence to chase my dreams and follow my intuition. I get all that from my family. It is an inner training, the most important kind."
