The first Chinese American Idol
JADIN WONG, A LOCAL AMERICAN dancer of exotic style and international acclaim, is today 94 years old and yearns to perform. Born in San Francisco, Calif., Jadin left home at 14 to pursue her passion--to become a New York Broadway performer and Hollywood film star. Her closest friend was her mother who gave her $40 and instructions to be honest and friendly to all people and who told her "donít forget to write and stay in touch."
