Interview with Janis Hsu (2013&2014 SIT Staff; 2014 SIT Chief Organizer)

"For me, through SIT, I really met a lot of good friends; maybe some of them will become friends in lifetime."

--- Janis Hsu (2013&2014 SIT Staff; 2014 SIT Chief Organizer)

(1)Motivation for joining this program for the second time:

The first thing is that I like to talk with foreigners. I want to practice my English skills. I want to communicate with them and discuss with them about their culture. The second reason is that I want to study abroad. SIT program offers a great opportunity for us to meet outstanding graduate students in the US. If I study in the US in the future, I can ask for their help in advance. The last and the most important one is that I want to lead this group (to be the chief organizer for the orientation week this year.) I know students who take part in this program are excellent students at NTHU, have their own view of the world and also have aspiration towards their life. I want to communicate with them and meet more people who have that kind of traits.

(2) Are there any differences between 2013 SIT and 2014 SIT?

The biggest difference is my role. Last year, I was only a staff member. For me, last year I could chat more with participants, but for this year, I have to learn about to be a leader in a group. I need to be concerned about all the situations at the same time.

(3) What does SIT means to you?

For me, I met a lot of people who share the same interests and concerns. I can discuss with SIT participants or staff regarding world social/economic situations. In my department, none of my classmates love that kind of topics. For me, through SIT, I really met a lot of good friends; maybe some of them will become friends in lifetime.

(4) Words for the future organizer, future staff and participants

For the future organizer, I would like to say “work harder” because you will lead a group of outstanding students in National Tsing Hua University. You can be better. You definitely can learn a lot of things from staff, who can organize activities pretty well. For future staff, I would like you to learn how to communicate with foreigners, talk about the cultures and learn different things from foreigners because they are really knowledgeable and had a great deal experience that can share with us. For future participants, I want you to enjoy Taiwan. Taiwan is a small island, with beautiful scenery. I hope you could enjoy the time in Taiwan.
