Joy was born in Taipei, Taiwan and lived there until she was 7 years old. She then moved to Richmond, BC where she spent most of her life. Joy has been volunteering with Live Different since 2008 when she went on her first Build to the Dominican Republic with her high school. She moved to Hamilton in 2011 to work with Live Different and now calls this city her home. Her love for kids has led her to pursue studies in Child and Youth Care. She loves spending her time with ALL the children of the world…seriously. Her interests and hobbies include traveling, cooking, playing games, hosting parties, and trying new things. Oh and she doesn’t drink coffee, but she does drink lots and lots of tea!
