Come join the North American Taiwanese Women’s Association II (NATWA II) at the 2012 NATWA 北美洲臺灣婦女會 Convention in San Jose/Silicon Valley, CA. This year’s theme is “Love and Compassion / 愛心、關懷”. It’s a great conference of many highly talented and prominent women from the Taiwanese American community. Plus, it’s a great opportunity to network and discuss issues of relevance to this particular segment of the community.
This year’s conference features many amazing women who we’ve highlighted through TaiwaneseAmerican.org in the past year:
Marilyn Fu, Screenwriter
Victoria Linchong, actress, writer, producer and director working in both theater and film
