Administrative Coordinator 行政總務
Through years of homeschooling and serving in children and youth ministries, along with a software engineering background, Ann thrives in facilitating logistics, collecting resources, and processing data. She has worked extensively in key administrative capacities for Life Chinese and EMPOWER Youth Theatre events and programs throughout the years and now focuses on curriculum development.
Artistic Consultant 戲劇總監／藝術顧問
Rebecca is the Founder of the EMPOWER Youth Theatre summer camp program, serving for years as its Director, Playwright, and Fight Choreographer. Her journey with theatre began at the California Theatre Center, where she trained in acting as well as technical production, stage management, and was selected for the Leadership Program. Rebecca performed in numerous productions at CTC as well as the Monta Vista High School Theatre Arts Department. These experiences, along with her bilingual upbringing, enabled her to lead EMPOWER Youth Theatre in both Taiwan and the U.S. with emphasis on rigor and fun, collaborative creativity and individual growth. Also passionate about advocacy, justice, and art, Rebecca graduated from NYU in 2019 with a degree in International Relations.
Youth Leadership Consultant 青少年培訓顧問
Libby has worked with Life Chinese throughout the years in a variety of roles, from running brainstorm sessions behind-the-scenes to teaching workshops and giving talks to the broader community. At EMPOWER Youth Theatre, she oversaw Youth Leadership Training, collaborated on scriptwriting, co-designed the playwriting summer camp program, and provided vocal coaching. (However, students usually know her best as “Captain Libby” — the one can tell them when snack time is.) Libby cares deeply about building relationships with her students and encouraging their creativity as well as their critical thinking. Her love of language and literature — in both English and Chinese! — continues to inspire her graduate work in English and Asian American Studies at UC Berkeley.
