Dr. Jane Chu

Dr. Jane Chu is President Obama's nominee to head the National Endowment for the Arts.

Her mother was placed on a train as a teenager to escape Communist China, hoping for a better life in Hong Kong.

Jane's grandparents took significant risk putting their daughter on the train without travel papers, knowing if authorities checked for documents she would have been imprisoned. 

Jane's mother never saw her parents or siblings again.
