As someone who was born and raised in Taiwan, she has always wanted to contribute to her homeland. She hopes to inspire more like-minded individuals to care for the elderly and children through her actions.
From being a child star to a mother and now a grandmother, she has experienced the ups and downs of life, as well as helplessness and encouragement. She understands the impermanence of life and that everyone goes through difficult times, and everyone needs to be loved. When she has the ability, she wishes to contribute to society and make it a more caring place.
