About Me

I am a recently retired professional. A humble Catholic Christian. A pacifist. Avid reader. Was born in Taiwan but spend most of my adult life in New Jersey. My heroes are St Francis of Assisi, Albert Schweitzer, Mother Teresa, Dorothy Day, St Vincent DePaul, and Pope Francis. Have been volunteering for hospice patients and homeless shelter. I have an outgoing personality and easy to chat with.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Teach, Learn, Share

I have been blessed with grace all my life. It is my turn to payback and take care of littlest of sisters/brothers. I want to become the voice of voiceless
