As we grow up, we learn new things and pick up new skills. We hope that those tools will help us navigate the quandaries of life. However, when we venture off into new and unknown territories, we often find ourselves beginning anew. Ellen explains how knowing nothing can be a good thing and how we can utilize our own power of zero.

Having graduated from UC Berkeley with a Bachelor of Arts degree in economics, Ellen Chu has been working in the TV and radio entertainment field since 1992. With her extensive experience in the entertainment industry, Ellen hosted the Golden Bell award-winning traveling television program - 繞著地球跑 and many more television shows.
