Gwei Lun-Mei’s Interview and behind the scenes video

Gwei Lun-Mei’s childhood dream was to become a diplomat. In 2004, while studying at the Tamkang University, Taipei, she participated in a student exchange program to come to France at the University of Lyon. She fondly remembers her year in France. With this newly added life experience and perspective as well as her frequent trips globe trotting around the world, she was able to draw an  interesting perspective and comparison between the Oriental and Western/French cultures.
