Hsin-Fen was born and raised on the beautiful island of Taiwan. In her sophomore year in college, she studied abroad in Canada. Upon completing her B.A. in Chinese Language and Creative Writing, she received a government grant to work abroad in England, sharing the beauty and the complexity of her mother tongue with her students. Before coming to the U.S., she traveled to many countries including China, Costa Rica, Greece, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan and New Zealand, helping to form a healthy and positive view of the world. In 2012, Hsin-Fen came to the University of Arizona to pursue her M.A. in Language, Reading and Culture at the College of Education, where she met her husband who was born and raised in Nogales, Sonora and AZ. She believes her life journeys have shaped her into a better human being who appreciates different cultures and perspectives. She values the precious life lessons one can learn when being abroad, and is thrilled to join the UA Study Abroad team to assist Wildcats to study abroad and explore the world!
