Hello everyone, welcome to my blog and welcome to D.C.! My name is Jill and I am from Taiwan. Actually, my Chinese name is “Hsiao-Man” which is beautiful but hard to pronounce in English; therefore I use “Jill” instead. So, just call me Jill! I am one of the three Tawainese students in The Washington Center (TWC) and I am very honored to be elected as a blogger for this semester. I major in accounting but that doesn't explain who I am. In a nutshell, I am a travelholic, foodlover and I love to write and draw.
