Media Marketer & Recruitment Head
Plainsboro, New Jersey, USA
Frances is a third-year history major at Yale University. She aspires to connect Taiwan to the rest of the world one business transaction at a time. Passionate about keeping Taiwan free and bringing people together to work towards that cause, she has served as President of the Taiwanese-American Society at Yale and has been awarded the Professor Chen Wen-chen Foundation Scholarship for service to the Taiwanese-American community. Frances joined the TASC student committee in December and has thus far revamped the structure and content of the website as well as the logo to appeal to ambitious students. She is most excited about working with delegates at TASC who share her belief that education reform is key to keeping Taiwan free.
In the coming year, she is hoping to study in Korea to learn more about its language and culture and find ways to improve Taiwan-Korea relations to counter China's increasing aggressiveness in the region. In her free time, Frances enjoys getting to know people over long dinners, singing loudly, appreciating minimalist designs, learning languages (she speaks Mandarin, Japanese, French and is learning Korean), and making people's days.
Her favorite quote is: "Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the single candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared." (attributed to Buddha)
