Operation Christmas Cards: Bringing Christmas to Young Patients in Taichung

Author: Alex Lin, 2017-2018

Christmas was very different for me this year. Being halfway across the world from home during the holiday season was not easy. However, I have received a lot of patience and love—often in the form of food—from the people I met and friends I made in Taiwan. Certainly, I can go on and on about how hospitable the Taiwanese people are. So, for Christmas, I wanted to give back to the Taiwanese community that has so generously opened its arms to me.

Friendsgiving in Hualien

The 2017-2018 school year marks Hualien's first year with Fulbright Taiwan. Made up of nine ETAs, the inaugural group has been enthusiastic about teaching in Hualien and engaging with the local community. To celebrate Thanksgiving last week, Hualien's coordinator and ETAs gathered for their very own "Friendsgiving" potluck.
