New immigrant becomes plant biology expert

New immigrant becomes plant biology expert

Chen Jia-hong, a Vietnamese new immigrant, dedicates herself to academic affairs and to the work of the Parents Association at Xue Jia Elementary School in Tainan during her eight years of staying in Taiwan. She always wants to put signs for the plants in the campus, to educate students on the plant knowledge.
Chen used to work for the Forestry Bureau as a project manager. With her experience in field research, she wants to show the public that the new immigrants are like the plants in the salty soil, trying very hard to establish the foundation and grow.
Fifteen years ago, Chen moved and settled down in Taiwan like a plant drifting on the water and floating on to land. Upon learning of the New Immigrant Dream Fulfillment project, she was excited and decided to contribute something to Taiwan. After she was chosen, she started the field research at the campus and became a botany expert. The director of the National Immigration Agency's Tainan Office, Wang Ya-yu, praised her for her courage in pursuing her dreams.
