Six o’clock is about the time I come home from a full day of class, work and a mildly maintained social life. With a coffee in hand, I sink into my 70’s style sofa crammed against the wall of our microscopic college apartment and begin my nighttime ritual. Phone? Check. Laptop on? Check. TV on and season one of “The Office” blaring? Check. Indie rock playing from my tablet? Check. Doing homework while all of this is happening? Check. Sensory overload? Definitely check.
As a Finance major in my senior year of college, I came to the U.S. all the way from Tunghai University in Taiwan. Taiwan is a beautiful country where liberal diversity and multiculturalism thrive. I see a lot of similarities between the convention industry and Taiwan. I think that is what makes me feel like home when I am almost 8,000 miles away.
