National Taiwan University
Eastern Site Co-Coordinator
Hello everyone! I’m Judy Lee, and I am a junior in National Taiwan University majoring in Economics. I was born and grew up in Taipei -- a lively, bustling place that I've always loved. My friends say that I’m an easygoing girl who has a sweet smile on her face all the time. I like to make new friends. I’m a thoughtful person, and I get along with people very well.
I love to play volleyball -- I’m the captain of our department’s volleyball team. I’m also the former president of a volunteering club called Kind Kids Friends. The people in KKF love spending time with children, and hold several camps at Rebei Elementary School in Hualien throughout the school year as well as school breaks. Through the club, I found that I really enjoyed making friends -- not only with my peers, but also with kids. Getting to know these kids truly made for some unforgettable experiences. By spending time with these kids, I learned that people are capable of interacting with each other without any prejudice.
I also work as an intern at the Association of the Visual Art in Taiwan (AVAT), an non-profit that works to provide artists with better platforms to showcase their work.
For me, TASC is a new, big challenge for me because I rarely have the chance to communicate with foreigners. I’m really excited about next year's conference. I think that TASC gives both students in Taiwan and America a precious opportunity to reflect on the connections between the two nations, to understand the impressions and impact that each nation has on the other, and to spark some ideas that will strengthen the connections between us. By taking advantage of our different cultures and beliefs, I believe we can broaden our horizons just by discussing various issues or sharing our personal experiences in the conference. We dream big because it's an opportunity to use our ideas to influence the world in a big way. TASC is a chance to make this happen. Join us next year and take the chance to travel and share ideas with American students. It'll be an experience of a lifetime.
