I am from Taiwan, a country full of friendly people and warm welcome. My concern about other people's lives lead me to study in social science (from politics, social works to sociology). Volunteer experience in different kinds of organisations and positions is a big part of my life stories and has opened up different doors for me to explore the global world. For my PhD, I will focus on intergenerational relationship, especially on employed women's roles as the main care giver in the family. As a person with such a strong familial orientation, I plan to go back to Taiwan after my study and use my knowledge and ability to contribute to the land and people that have nurtured me so much.
