My name is Sabine
A year ago, I told my friend I was going to Taiwan to study Chinese.
They could’nt believe it. But I gotta do this for Eddie Peng.
Whenever I meet someone, everyone’s always talking about how they want to go somewhere else.
I really don’t get it!
Like if I could stay and find a job here I would definitely stay here.
I started studies at the Asian Study Department in my university.
Of course after a few years before graduation. It was just logical to go and see Asia.
My mom was just like, “You need to go to China! Go to China for a year, it’s going to be amazing!”
And I just felt like it’s a total different world. I was so used to the life back in Latvia. I was just like “No! it’s gonna make me so uncomfortable.”
If I have to go somewhere, I’m just gonna go to Taiwan, cuz I heard so many nice things about Taiwan, so I could have gotten the scholarship from China.
But I intentionally didn’t apply for the exams that I had to take for the scholarship.
And then I just went to Taiwanese embassy and I just asked if they had something for me.
Before I came to Taiwan, I of course was doing my research.
And I saw Eddie Peng. I knew that’s where I’m supposed to be.
