Michele is my mentor, my friend, my idol, and the person I admire. I met Michele in the summer of 2013 and then had worked together for five years. As a psychologist, Michele has strong passion for scientific research in multiple areas from neuroscience to cross-culture; as a mother, she is open-minded and a lovely mother like I want to become; as a mentor, she can always point out key issues (i.e., problems in the experimental design and essay-writing); and as a friend, Michele has witnessed me finding the right guy, becoming a mother, and finding a job. When I got my position in the Institution of Psychology in China, I felt very anxious, but Michele encouraged me and said you will be a good mentor. Although I'm still trying, I am not afraid anymore to be a good supervisor. When I am met with problems, I think of Michele and what she would do. Her openness, inclusiveness, and her insights and enthusiasm for scientific research inspires me and still guides me. I am so grateful to have worked with her and to be a member of the Culture Lab! Love all of you guys!
Best wishes,
