Visiting that other windy city
Taiwanese American Student's Club (TASC) at Northwestern University to share Dear Taiwan with the local community. We were warmly welcomed by both students on campus and members of the local Taiwanese community alike. It was the first time that either of us set foot on Northwestern's campus, and really, it is a magnificent campus. The weather was also just beautiful, making the entire experience all the more enjoyable. Honestly though, if I had to pick one thing that was negative about the outdoor conditions that weekend in Chicago, there needed to be more leaves. That lack of leaves on trees really just drove home that, albeit already apparent, dreaded feeling screaming "winter is coming".
The energy of the crowd that afternoon was truly incredible. Despite having already conducted a few of these screenings, I'm still amazed by all the people we meet, and the wealth of the conversations, and diversity of experiences and perspectives shared. Thank you again TASC@Northwestern and the Chicago area Taiwanese community for your kind hospitality.
