There is also another side of the story to be told about David.
David and his family emigrated from Mainland China during late 1980s to Dallas, Texas. His parents were among the early pioneers who introduced Chinese fast food in the mid 1990s. Their business nurtured a small part of the Ventura county for many years until their retirement in May 2016. As a child growing up in a family where both parents were busy working even during the weekends, David and his younger brother didn’t really have much chance to go to theme parks or movies with their parents. What they learned as youngsters was to not cause too many troubles for their parents. The boys studied hard, and eventually David graduated with a BA degree in Economy from UCLA. He tried to help out as much as he could at the restaurant during his high school and college years. He would have never thought he would go back to restaurant business after witnessing all the hard work his parents put in. The restaurant was open 7 days year round and the only holidays they would enjoy together as a family was Thanksgiving and Christmas. In fact, even his parents wanted David to pursue another path. For this reason, David was in corporate environments and other tech start-ups.
