Volunteer Experience

  • Founder - Mountain Cleaners in Taipei, 2012 Every man born in Taiwan needs to take at least one-year military service to be under obligation to our country/society. In 2012, with my expertise in computer science, I was not sent to the troop but arranged at Environmental Protection Administration, Executive Yuan, Taiwan for doing information analysis. I found that there were some mountains polluted by lots of trash, however there is always a budget limitation for our government to clean it. So, I was hands-on to organize a group "Mountain Cleaners in Taipei" to clean those mountains by citizens. Before I left for US, I hosted ten events to clean 10 different mountains in Taipei. The attending people was 10 in the first event and increased to 30s in the following events. In each event, I had to broadcast it on Facebook, organize the traffic to the mountain, especially not everyone has a car driving to the mountain, prepare all bags and clips for trash picking, check all participator's equipment, like food, water, clothes, and raincoat, because the mountain climate is changing all the time. To give participators a higher motivation, I would prepare gifts for the group which picks the most amount of trash. Although those things took me lots of effort and money, I really feel happy to do that. Indeed, each event we not only clean the mountain but also clean our mind. Besides, I made many friends from those events. It is really nice to do something good for our society.
