Where are you from?

The whole world is my home! I've studied and lived in Taiwan, mainland China, the U.S. and Spain, and I've traveled a lot.

What's your FIUTS story?
It has always been important to me to have a feeling of belonging. However, studying and living all over the place sometimes makes it confusing where I am truly from. I am considered a 'foreigner' even in Taiwan, where I was born and raised, but in FIUTS, everyone travels a lot and enjoys such experiences. We identify ourselves by all the pieces we've collected in every trip. This is a family of global citizens. This is where I belong.

How will you change the world?
My dream is to work in health-related NGOs and promote cultural diversity in daily life. I am currently working in CURE UW Chapter, an international charity and also a RSO on campus that helps kids with deformities in developing countries. With my experience gained in FIUTS, I am more aware of how culture influences health and the importance of respecting cultural differences.
