Some people are in pursuit of democracy and freedom, some people because of marriage, some people because of good mountains and good water, some people because of human reason and other reasons and immigrants to Taiwan, so that the number of new residents more and more, so that new residents gradually attention. But the problems faced by new residents are endless, such as domestic violence, family problems, language barrier, different living habits, social welfare, culture and employment, and who can seek help with these problems? The reason why we choose this topic is to let everyone pay more attention to the difficulties faced by new immigrants and to get along with the three principles of 'respect', 'tolerance' and 'friendship'. After all, to create a beautiful new future, we need to come together!

4. Problems We Had To Overcome

We have to overcome the dilemma of time, because some people have something at home or need to tutorial, so we Can be together at the same time not much time, so time is the most we have to overcome the problem. Sometimes, because each person's views are different, so sometimes there will be different views of the situation and have a small dispute, but we will first discuss each other after thinking, and then by a compromise, and help each other. Sometimes, when someone has questions, we will all know what we are saying to help him solve. This time we have experienced a lot of problems, but we are not afraid, because we are a team, a common face of difficult challenges.

5. Our Project Sound Bite

At the beginning we chose to visit the Taiwan New Citizenship Association because now more and more new residents, but the new residents are mostly discriminated against, so we want to know more about new residents, and the new residents to promote the different everyone. We can only use less than a month to do the site, this road is really some rugged. Do not know the new residents of the various problems of us, we must first collect a lot of information, listen to the association volunteer explanation, after it has to be classified, translated and typesetting. Looking back, just now, there is a work that is hard after the beautiful harvest. Maybe when someone asks us if we are willing to participate again in the online fair, we may be silent or silently shaking his head. But it is undeniable that we do not regret the decision at that time, but for our division of labor after the finished product and feel proud.
