En-Tien Yang was born on 5 March 1974 in Kang Shan. In October 1974, i.e. six months after her birth, she was abandoned on a market. A social worker heard her crying and, much to the surprise and astonishment of the woman, the baby had no arms and one of her legs was shorter than the other. En-Tien was taken to a police station. Countless orphanages were contacted, but none of them was willing to take the child. Finally, the little girl was adopted by a priest. Later, the different length of her legs caused her to develop scoliosis. When she was recovering, she started searching for something to do with her life. As she was interested in art, her foster father tried to find a teacher for her. From 1990 onwards, she has been supported as a Scholarship Holder by AMFPA.
