An Introduction Episode 51

I am a high school student with innovative ideas and passionate dreams. I started to self-learn web-developing skills at an early age, managed to create my own tech blog in third grade, and launched my first personal website at an age of 9. After graduating from middle school, I spent one year in the US as an exchange student, becoming more independent, self-motivated, and innovative. While I had to deal with cultural shock and the language barrier, my passion was still burning. I shared my personal experience in my blog “Phil’s America Exchange Year”, and developed a mobile app for a better blog reading experience on mobile phones. I am a participant of many conferences such as Global Initiatives Symposium in Taiwan, I am also an active MUNer. I recently formed a school wide broadcast news station in my current high school. Being a high school student in Taiwan might be stressful, but my passion of fulfilling my dream makes everything possible. Just as the saying goes, “What the mind can conceive, humankind can achieve.”

Brown University Simulation of the United Nations Episode 50

My experience at Brown University Simulation of United Nations (BUSUN) was honestly quite like nothing I've ever done before. 
The style was so different from other types of MUN I've experienced. 
Everything was done impromptu and some procedures I had not been introduced to before were used (e.g. Round Robin).
In a word, it was: original and I genuinely enjoyed the conference.

The Cycle of Crafting Episode 49

My favorite hobby is crafting, and there are many reasons behind it. First of all, crafting was the first activity that I actually enjoyed. It was so enjoyable to me, that it never got boring even after hours of restless work. Whenever I successfully craft something, I am able to learn new techniques, which eventually improve my skills. As I got better at crafting, more opportunities opened, and this cycle of unlocking opportunities made me endlessly interested in this hobby.
