Reunion in Taiwan

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

30 alumni gathered in Taipei for an exciting reunion held by the Taiwan Alumni Committee (TAC). Hans Huang (2007 ALC1), the main organizer for the reunion, opened the event followed by an introduction of TAC by the current president, Maggie Su (2006 ALC1) and a welcome message by Kazutoh Ishida (VIA’s Senior Stanford Programs Director). Professor Hsiou-Wei Lin from National Taiwan University, a long-time supporter of VIA, also shared his VIA experience over the years.

The event also included a video interview with Andy Kuo (1997 ALC2) who founded Atlaspost.com, which is one of most popular social network service providers in Taiwan and was recently acquired by Groupon. (See here for more about Atlaspost.)  Alumni Michael Lin (2001 ALC1), Maggie Su (2006 ALC1), and Chris Lin (2008 ALC1) also shared about their career choices and work experience. The recent program participants listened to their stories with great interest. As part of a fund raising effort by the committee, Jeannie Tai and Johnny Chuang (both 2009 ALC2) led an auction event selling items from Stanford.

VIA greatly appreciates the staff members of TAC who organized this event!
