Dr. George Hsieh's, former president of NPU, personal advice to Jieli encouraged her to pursue an advanced degree at NPU. She vividly recalls, "Dr. Hsieh always greeted me with a big smile. He told me that I must have faith in myself and my abilities if I want to reach my dreams. I've followed his advice."
