Jiayou China! Jiayou Buffalo! Jiayou children artists! The Chinese “jiayou” cheer means “Keep going!” It is the message that GSE PhD student Qinghua Chen first sent to her home country in a video
produced soon after news of the pandemic broke. She gave aid of a different kind to her Buffalo-area home last month when she donated 3,600 face masks to the Amherst Police and the Pediatric & Adolescent Urgent Care of WNY. This month she debuted her latest effort: an online exhibit of children’s art she’s collected in the months since the pandemic closed UB’s campus.
