Persevering new immigrant wins “Dream Achiever Award”

Lee Yi-chen, a Vietnam immigrant who recently won the “Dream Achiever Award” from Soroptimist International, with a US$3,000 reward, becomes the first new immigrant in Taiwan to win this honor.
Married and moved to Penghu at 16, Lee raised her two kids and paid for loans on her own. Despite her miserable fate, Lee never gave up making efforts for a better life. In order to recover from a series of accidents in life, she worked at a salon, a food stand, and a factory while also giving lectures.
The Taiwan Soroptimist annual meeting with its award ceremony is going to take place on April 24 at the Lin Hotel in Taichung. Being the first immigrant in Taiwan to win the award, Lee has set a model for both Taiwanese and for the new residents in Taiwan.
