You always put others before yourself. Thank you! love you! love you! loooove you!
What did you learn from your mother about being Taiwanese? (妳從妳母親那兒學到甚麼是一個台灣人?)
One of the most important things we’ve learned from our mom is to be compassionate, generous, and hospitable to everyone you meet. I often here my mom say, “Be my guest. Be my guest!” Whether it’s a new or old friend that steps into our house or the Taiwanese American Center of Northern California, she showers them with her attention, love, and of course, lots of food!
Tell us about how your mother inspires you. (妳的母親／女兒如何激勵妳?)
Like Bill Gates, our mom had a vision that started in our garage (well…home, but close enough!) Her dream was to start a Taiwanese American Center (TAC) in Northern California so the Taiwanese community of the Bay Area can have a centralized place they can gather and call “home.” In April 2003, TAC was established and her dream came true. When our mom has a vision, she puts all her mind, heart, and soul to reach it. Daily, she inspires us to faithfully work hard in good spirit.
What is one thing that you would like your mother to know? (有那件事是妳希望讓妳的母親／女兒知道的?)
Mommy, you are our best friend and mentor. We love you so so SO much. We appreciate you for supporting us and being the rock of our family. You always put others before yourself. Thank you! love you! love you! loooove you!
