Ruohong Chen, born in 1997, Chongqing, is a visual artist.
The "hong" in my original name is written as "泓" in Chinese characters. When I was seven or eight years old, I met an abbot during a visit to Mount Emei. He felt a connection with me and asked my mother what my name was. After my mother told him, he asked her if I often got sick, to which my mother replied affirmatively. He then said that there was too much "water" in my destiny, and since the character "泓" also means water, fortune would flow away. So, he helped me change it to "宏."
