Forbes just published a list of 100 of the World’s most powerful women.  I’m going through the list looking for the Children of Divorce and have found a billionairess in China named Zhang Xin who says in one of her interviews that she doesn’t like Forbes’ lists.  Hahah!  Her story is really incredible.

Zhang Xin was born in 1965 in Beijing, China.  Wikipedia says that her parents split apart during the Cultural Revolution.  I guess if you’re going through major changes in society probably divorce makes sense.

Zhang Xin moved with her mother at Age 14 to Hong Kong and worked in factories.  She managed to scrape together enough money to move to England when she was 20 and went to school.  With her husband she has created a Real Estate Development company called SOHO China.
