For Taiwanese American Tiffany Yu, it is all about the “small wins and positive thinking”.
When she attended her first Intercollegiate Taiwanese American Students Association (ITASA) conference, she looked at the picture of Taiwan’s outline on the ITASA logo and thought it was a leaf.
Tiffany has gone a long way since then.
Her involvement with the Taiwanese American community started back when she was a student at Georgetown University. As a founder of the Taiwanese American Student Association at Georgetown, as well as the founder of the Taiwan Necklace project, Tiffany has been heavily involved with ITASA and continues to give back to ITASA and the community in more ways than one.
Watch here for the full interview as Tiffany talks more about her Taiwanese American identity and her hopes for the future of the Taiwanese American community.
