The younger Chen said in his post that he did not expect himself to get emotional over Xiang's graduation.

"But I always remember how my mom loved to learn; how she never had the chance to complete her education journey due to financial challenges in those days. So, like many of them in that generation, she gave it up, started working for the family, and became the woman you knew on the screens."
