Where in the World Is...KC Chen?
FIUTS alumnus and friend KC Chen is currently traveling in Rome, Italy, and sent us this photo of him sharing his FIUTS pride!
KC came to UW from Cyprus in 1968. It was through FIUTS that he met his wife Sue, who came from South Korea. Sue participated in the FIUTS homestay program, and her host family also hosted three other students. KC remembers that his first visit to Vancouver, BC, was also organized by FIUTS. KC is now a structural engineer for the University of Washington.
After Sue experienced homestay as a student, the Chens have gone on to become a host family themselves. The first student they hosted was from Italy. KC also got to know another Italian student through the language exchange program, leading him to study Italian for a couple years and now to visit the UW Rome Center for a few weeks.
Thanks for being a part of our community, KC and Sue! We hope you have a wonderful adventure in Italy.
