Family Tree

Lu's parents worked as accountants for the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China (ICBC). Her paternal grandfather, the father of her father, was of Manchu descent. He was abused and imprisoned during the Cultural Revolution because his great-grandfather was a bureaucrat and respected good landlord. After his rehabilitation, he worked as a branch president for the ICBC. Lu's maternal grandmother, the mother of her father, a teacher, was forced to commit suicide during the Cultural Revolution. Lu's maternal grandfather, the father of her mother, a retired cadre from a state-owned enterprise, is a descendant of Zhu Yuanzhang, the great-grandfather of the Ming Dynasty.

China Journey

Lu spent her formative years from 1987 to 2013 in Xinjiang, Henan, and Beijing, China.


Her classical music education began when her mother was pregnant with her. As a child, when she heard music, she could play simple and beautiful melodies with both hands on the piano. Her father discovered her talent and diligently escorted her to piano lessons. Through the power of classical music and the positive encouragement from her family, she excelled academically and consistently ranked among the top students in her school.

At age 8, Lu's father fell seriously ill with cancer, throwing the family into a crisis and causing mental distress. Sadly, when she was age 10, her father passed away at the 301 General Hospital of the PLA, leaving her with post-traumatic stress disorder.  At ages 12 and 13, a criminal neighbor trapped and sexually abused her. She was pregnant and forced to have an abortion and almost dead in bed. These traumas led to anxiety, depression, and two suicide attempts within a month, where she consumed numerous sleeping pills trying to work through feelings of pain and sadness and survived in the hospital. She endured countless struggles, nightmares, and disruptions to her education, but she persevered. Her mom sent Lu to Evergrande High School, which was invested in by Chinese entrepreneur Xu Jiayin. Her teachers trained her in singing and dancing, and she was elected as the star cover of China's Boys and Girls Magazine,  which inspired her aspiration to become an artist.


At age 16, Lu began her early career as a TV host, model, singer, and actress. During her high school summer vacation, she achieved second place in a talent contest organized by a local television station. She was invited to be a guest host on a TV program; receiving her first paycheck and honor brought her immense delight. Although she forgot her dead father expecting her to study LAWS, her mom forced her to learn Business Administration, and she also took Vocal Performance courses at college. After completing tasks, Lu followed her heart to escape her hometown. She traveled by train to Beijing with the money she had saved from her childhood and her unwavering dream of becoming an artist. She was fortunate to receive numerous offers from producers, directors, and media companies while studying acting at the Central Academy of Drama in Beijing. Ultimately, she chose to join Huayi Brothers, a prominent talent agency in mainland China, and she quickly became a rising star in the film and television industry.

Lu Ning Motto

Life is hard, but we can change it.

The mind creates matter; consciousness shapes our reality.


If I am not working on it, then I am studying how to get there.

Masters inspire people; Legends solve problems; Normal people complain.

A great leader has a servant's heart.

Empathy is the force that changes the world forward.

Leaders become great because of their ability to empower and strengthen others to succeed.
