The Magic of I-House!

Dear I-House,

It's a wonderful feeling to be back to I-House after 8 years.  The House is so renovated and is brilliant!

When life goes on after graduation, many times I have a feeling like everything (the magic!) had started from I-House, and I am so grateful for this place.  

I got to see I-House friends from around the world while traveling (UK, France, Ausria, Japan, U.S...) and also when they came to visit Taiwan.  We always had a bunch of stories to tell and things to catch up -- you're so connected to the world!

8 years later today I'm even able to come back to attend my roommie Kayla's wedding!!! What's more magical than this?!

Kayla & Didi Huang

I hope I-House will keep doing great for more young great spirits to have magic in their lives!  Let's do this!

Many, many gratefulness to I-House and everyone who takes care of this house so well!
