FAPA’s monumental achievements

By Lucy Shen 沈仲珊

I was lucky enough to spend my summer with the association experiencing the dynamics of the US capital. I met many inspiring people who are active and eminent in their fields. All of us were here for the same reason — to stand in solidarity with the unrelenting people of Taiwan.

Much has been done. Nonetheless, there is more that must be faced. Being a part of that great momentum gives me pride and hope.

Within my lifetime, I aspire to witness the flag of Taiwan flying vigorously in front of every international institution. That day will be a celebration of Taiwanese national identity without any hesitation, bullying or intimidation.

It will mark a day of immense pride, respect for this young democracy and the realization that all of us did this together.

Forever proud to be a Taiwanese. Together, we march forward.

Lucy Shen worked as an intern at the Formosan Association for Public Affairs in Washington over the summer.
