Shiana Ferng becomes a Falun Dafa practitioner together with her other family members at Tucson Arizona in 2007. She have been involved in many Falun Dafa activities since then; helped teaching Falun Gong exercises at parks and during cultural events on and off the University of Arizona (UA) campus.
Shiana found that being a Falun Dafa practitioner helped provide the balance necessary to handle her daily responsibilities and engage in life beyond the classroom and lab.
At the UA , she was the president of the Falun Dafa Club, a student-led organization that advances traditional Chinese culture and practices based on compassion, truthfulness and tolerance, meant to aid in mind-body alignment.
“It provided me a foundation of openness and patience,…”
“It has helped me with my life and it’s something I want to share with people.”
Shiana said her involvement with the Falun Dafa Club helped prepare her for her current position as an operations program manager for Microsoft in Nevada.
She has continued her Falun Dafa practice there, teaching weekly meditation classes at Microsoft’s Reno campus while also strategizing new business opportunities and partnerships for Microsoft through cross-functional teams. Her role also is aimed at optimizing the way people work, which ties back to her Falun Dafa focus.
Shiana understood the significance one person could have either as a meditation leader or being an advocate for awareness.
