Victor Gao has many roles to play in his life: he's a current affairs commentator, a policy advisor, and a lawyer.

Bush, Bob Dole, and Henry Kissinger. How did those great figures influence his vision of the world and his career? Gao shares his memories with us in our series "Deep Dive: Talks with Chinese Internationals".
