Ms. Li moved to Taiwan when she was seven years old. Unable to speak the language, she was subjected to bullying but eventually adapted into Taiwanese culture. When she moved back to America for high school, she thought the bullying would end; it didn’t. While in community college, Ms. Li participated in the school’s leadership retreat, where she got to draw, write and illustrate her emotions. Through art therapies, she experienced the power of self-expression and found her voice and an inner strength that she didn’t know existed. She trusts that by giving back, we can inspire our next generation with more opportunities and endless new ideas.
