Devi. She is a warrior, a beautiful wife, a mother, a scholar. These attributes can equally describe Li-Hong. Apart from her strength as a physicist, Li-Hong was a huge patron of the Asian Arts in Saint John. This dance presentation in Bharatanatyam, a classical dance style of South India, describes the goddess Devi. As a dedication to Li-Hong, I will draw parallels between her and the goddess.
