LeiWei to America
Take an extremely motivated international student from Taiwan, fly her out to two different countries, watch as she accomplish her goal, and what do you get? LeiWei Shih.
Shih, 20, is a very kind, and hardworking individual who’s goal is to receive a degree in journalism where she can find the opportunity to be an intern and further her education.
When I asked her what was one of the most important things in her life, she looked at me with a warm smile, let her mind wander for a few seconds, and she promptly mentioned her career.
Shih has sacrificed seeing her family in Taiwan only once a year to study in New Zeland and in the U.S. in order to succeed and make her dreams a reality.
So what’s next for Shieh you may ask?
“I would travel to many countries in the world, I like to expand my view in different places and environments. I would also go to different countries and help people, I like to give back to others.” Shieh said.
