Mei-Hua Lin

Mei-Hua Lin
Alumna, M.S.

I was born in 1973, in Taiwan, a country with an ambiguous and conflictive political situation, but more importantly with successfully reformed economic policies and educational system. I was gratefully benefited by both of these two benign developmental strategies and being able to accomplish my vocational secondary and technological bachelor degree in food-science. This tiny island is truly blessed by the export-led economic strategy and so am I.
