I met Vincent at the beginning of my freshman year because we had a few mutual friends that lived in my dorm complex. At the time, I was in the process of figuring out where to study abroad, and Vincent was an invaluable source when it came to deciding a location. I also found out a lot about Vincent and where he use to live when he was in high school and growing up.
When I asked Vincent to help me with this project his response was immediate and he has been a great friend to me ever since. In this oral history I will attempt to outline the life of Vincent in Taiwan and how his experiences shaped him.
Included is an outline of his early life within the school system, his family life, and then his experiences in his teen years. We also looked at a comparison between his experiences in the United States and the Asian Pacific South.
Now let’s Meet Vincent!
