Who belongs here ...
After serving as a nonprofit executive and founder, I am now an adviser to nonprofits and businesses, a speaker and a facilitator of convenings focused on the topics of nonprofit, professional reinventions, immigrant, and mindfulness. I founded "You Belong Here" to support people who have experienced the challenges of being "the others" in this country.
I immigrated to the U.S. from Taiwan with my parents as a teenager. Although I had tasted success and fame as a child actor in my native country, upon my arrival I instantly became an outsider in my new home. It was not my choice to begin a new life in a foreign country, learn a new language, make new friends, and adapt to a completely different culture, but I wholeheartedly embraced the American dream - which is the goal of "You Belong Here" - to help you find your new American dreams and make a difference where you live, work and play.

What have you done to belong to a community?
Jumping to join "YOU BELONG HERE" is a lot easier than bungee.
I am passionate about making a positive difference in my community, even by doing something slightly outrageous. Check out my bungee jump for a local nonprofit, Thrive, from 150 feet (think of a 10-story building.)
