Founder of Teach for Taiwan
"Born in Taipei and raised in Taichung, Anting first came under the spotlight when, in 2008, having taught herself English, she received acceptances to both National Taiwan University and 10 top US colleges. She eventually set off to Princeton University, and published her story in a book titled, “I Boast in my Weakness”.
At Princeton she studied at the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, spending extensive time working in Haiti, Cambodia, Ghana, France and Switzerland. She snatched the top thesis prize with her work when she graduated, yet she couldn’t stop wondering: is what I do relevant to where I am from?
Since then, Anting worked at a management consulting firm in New York, while starting a team in Taiwan to experiment with the idea of “Teach for Taiwan” – recruiting college graduates to become quality teachers in communities in need. Now, she is moving back to Taiwan to officially launch the program – and invites you to join her on this next journey along with other “fools” that are dreaming for a generation."— TEDxTaipei
