China: the Issa family’s eternal love from grandfather to son

Mohammad Issa is overjoyed that his mother and sister have traveled to Wuhan, Hubei province, from Jordan to celebrate the Spring Festival with him and his wife’s family. Issa lived in China for fifteen years. “My grandfather came to China in the 1970s for work and gained a deep appreciation for China,” he stated. “His first visit left him impressed beyond measure. He praised the warmth and attention to detail of his Chinese employees.” Issa remarked, “My father arrived in China in 1994.” “He studied in Beijing and later spent seven years in Hangzhou, Zhejiang province, where he fell in love with the West Lake.”


Issa traveled to Hangzhou in 2009 to study Chinese at Zhejiang University, influenced by his father. He was struck by West Lake’s breathtaking scenery and Hangzhou’s distinct cultural environment. Issa moved to Wuhan in 2012 to pursue a degree in electronic engineering. He met Wuhan native Li Hualin, his wife, as a postgraduate student at Huazhong University of Science & Technology. 2014 saw their marriage. Issa and his spouse moved to Wuhan in 2016 after graduating, where they established a media company and started working in international trade.


As they spoke about Wuhan’s construction and development, Issa couldn’t help but emphasize how amazed he was. “Every day in Wuhan is different,” he stated. “Different from the traffic congestion in the past, there are developed subway systems in the city.” “There are also many beautiful and pleasant places, such as Optics Valley Walking Street,” he said. In addition to Wuhan’s quick changes, Issa was taken aback by how quickly rural China was changing.
