Going back to the roots of Kristie, we have come to know that she grew up in a Chinese-speaking house where her father (Li Gang) was a European-American, and her mother was Han Chinese. Kristie grew up in California and grew up seeing all inspiring people around her.
For education, Kristie attended Lynbrook High School initially. Driven by the whim to further the breadth of her knowledge, she went to Stanford University and pursued a journalism degree there. Later in 1997, she again gained herself a Master’s degree in media studies.
Kristie seems to be a very dedicated person who knew where she was heading towards. With a desire to understand more about her roots and culture, she followed her instincts to learn Chinese and went to China and joined Tsinghua University. But, she didn’t just learn Chinese while she was in China; she also freelanced for the South China Morning Post and managed to get her a job at Sohu.
She had a strong academic background, and she could present herself very well, she had to land in a good job, she did. Stout’s speech about the internet in China when she attended the Foreign Correspondents’ Club in Hong Kong grabbed the attention of a senior producer for CNN.
She was then invited for working as a television and dotcom reporter in 2000. From then on, her career took a rise.
Stout’s career and professional life are more than stellar. Some analogy can be drawn from her physical body and her professional life. As towering her height of 5 feet 11 inches (1.80 meters) is, so is the height of her success.
