Chiang Yi is an avid gym enthusiast and hikes in her free time. In her university days, she took part in student exchange programs to Beijing, China and Jakarta, Indonesia, where she experienced cultural differences which enriched her international perspectives. She also had the opportunity to join a work-and-travel program in the United States of America where she worked in Yellowstone National Park (the world’s first national park!).
