Can you tell me what it’s like growing up in Taiwan?
Before I went to college to study Commercial Design, I lived in Changhua, a relatively rural area compared to Taipei, where I’m living currently. I feel free no matter where I live. Even though living in Taipei and Chunghua are totally different lifestyles, I’m very happy with both of them. In my opinion, the most critical things for growing up are family and education. However, I couldn’t get used to the systems and rules of schools when I was growing up. I’m a very straightforward person, and sometimes I had conflicts with teachers in my school. Luckily, my family is very open-minded. They always support me no matter what, that’s why I can do what I’m passionate about for living.
Can you describe Taiwan to someone that has never been?
