I am a musician so it would be great to show people over here what our music is like and how the two cultures can be blended together to inspire a whole new world.
Who are you?
I am Ming-Hui Lin, a musician in the New England area and also a devoted community social worker. I am also a part of the Taiwan Women organization. Taiwan Women is a network founded in 1995 to facilitate communication and co-operation among Taiwanese women studying or living abroad who are interested in gender issues and current situation of Taiwanese women. By discussing gender-related issues and sharing our experiences, we hope to cultivate a channel of female voices. We hope to strengthen the solidarity of our sisterhood so we may combat gender inequality and succeed in shaping a new beautiful Taiwanese society!
What do you do?
I am currently pursuing a degree on Doctor of Musical Arts at Boston University, studying with Leslie Parnas. I am also a devoted teacher and outreach program representative. I received degrees from the Peabody Conservatory of the Johns Hopkins University (GPD, 07; MM, 05) and the Taipei National University of the Arts (BM, 03).
Why are you proud to be of Taiwanese heritage?
Taiwan is very unique in many ways, and it is an important icon not only for Asia but globally. I am the only one in the family who is in the States and I would like to show people that it is so great to be Taiwanese. I am proud of it!
What does the future of Taiwanese America look like to you?
I am a musician so it would be great to show people over here what our music is like and how the two cultures can be blended together to inspire a whole new world. One day, I would also like to see that we can just tell people that Taiwan is not a part of China without a doubt.
