Story: I grew up and went to university in the small, liberal, college city of Madison, famous for big parties and radical politics. I first came to Taiwan in 2009 and instantly fell in love with this country. I began learning Chinese and decided to move to Taiwan after graduating college. I received a scholarship to study in Taiwan and I've loved living here since. I'm continuously fascinated by Taiwan's history, politics and culture. I always try to learn as much as I can and I’ve embraced living abroad as a way to keep expanding my mind. Currently, I’m learning linguistics, philosophy, political economy and Japanese.
