“My First Earthquake Experience in Taiwan”

Taiwan is an extraordinary place! Filled with diversity, enriched with culture, and a place where you can feel at home, no matter where you come from. Or at least that’s the feeling I get.

My name is Mark Torres. I came to Taiwan from Belize about three years ago to study Business Administration at National Chengchi University, or 國立政治大學as we might know it in Mandarin. Earthquakes in Belize just never happen! I never knew what an earthquake felt like until I came to Taiwan.

“Even with all our technology and the inventions that make modern life so much easier than it once was, it takes just one big natural disaster to wipe all that away and remind us that, here on Earth, we're still at the mercy of nature”.
