I had so much fun at Rosemead’s Annual 4th of July Parade! I love all the brave little girls and boys ran up to our convertible to take pictures with us, during the parade!

I have truly enjoyed serving the community through the Miss Taiwanese American Pageant. From organizing bone marrow drives, to hosting Taiwanese American Heritage week, to performing at charity events such as the NATMA annual banquet, to socializing at community banquets, to attending political fundraisers and meeting movers and shakers in the community, I have had a memorable and meaningful experience on court. Some of the highlights include meeting and conversing with US Congressman Ed Royce, and his wife, Marie Royce, hosting the Taiwanese American Heritage Week festivities outdoors and meeting professional Beijing acrobats and Taiwanese dancers, working with APEX & A3M to host bone marrow drives, and riding atop a Rolls Royce & Lexus for the July 4th parade!
I have been able to expand my network to include prominent figures in business, politics, law and entertainment. Through the pageant, I have also been able to enrich understanding of my culture and serve as a goodwill ambassador to the community. Thank you Taiwan Center for giving me the honor of being Miss Taiwanese American 2012 1st Princess! See you all at the 2012 pageant at the San Gabriel Hilton Hotel on August 4th, where yours truly will be hosting the festivities!
