Jo grew up in New Jersey and moved to Boston in 2004 for school in pursuing her degree in Education.  She has always wanted to be a teacher because the first people in her life to inspire, encourage, and empower her were the teachers in her life.

While studying in college, God gave her a heart for the poor and oppressed. She became committed to urban education and got her degree in special education. Growing up, she always felt unloved, by her parents and everyone around her. It was hard for her to be Taiwanese-American in a predominantly white culture, and she hated herself. She struggled with her identity, never felt good enough, and suffered from depression and thoughts of suicide. Because she felt unloved, even though that wasn’t the case, she sought love from men.

After a failed relationship, she became severely depressed her last 3 years in Boston, became a workaholic, gymaholic, and had no friends. Months of counseling did nothing, but in an instant God healed her of depression! The effects of depression didn’t disappear instantly from her life, but buried deep within her was the joy of the Lord, the joy that comes from knowing God’s love. Nothing compares to the way God’s love has changed her life. It is the greatest gift she has ever received in life, and she wants everyone to experience the fullness of God’s love for themselves.

Her favorite scripture is Ephesians 3:16-21."
