When they were assessing her work for her graduation, they found all of Yu's creations were set in a single room, instead of in various places.

"It seems that my focus is always what happens in daily life, especially in a room," Yu explains. "I can find magnificent moments in daily life. Sometimes we don't realize how important such moments are until recalling the memory. We may find that it was just such a moment that changed our lives."

Now her focus is on creating a graphic novel about a 33-day hike she undertook in 2015 on the Camino de Santiago, an ancient pilgrimage route that ends in Santiago de Compostela in the northwest of Spain. She started the hike alone on her 30th birthday. It was a time when she was caught between two worlds, hesitating about whether to go back to China to live with her family or stay in France for a better chance of a career in animation.
