She interned at many companies when she was in New York and came up with many creative designs combining new technology. One of the companies she went to is Wix.com. She added AR to the website of tattoo stickers and impressed the client. She said that one shouldn't be afraid of a new field of study because it's very common in the industry that cross-disciplinary work is the norm. According to the Ministry of Education, 256 students were sent to top universities or companies oversea since 2005 to 2016. 100% of them were employed by designing companies, in Taiwan or abroad.
