How did we find Hsien?

Hsien was a floormate of Anna and Martin for a period of her exchange in Denmark. They met the very first night Martin and Anna moved to DK and since the two of them just came back from vacation in Taiwan, they had a lot of things to talk about from the very beginning.

Portrait of Hsien

“My grandpa was a soldier at the Chinese Civil War. His family tried to hide him but he was a curious teenager and when he was 13 he sneaked out of a house, he got caught and was taken into the troops. They have never seen each other since.”


It was really a pleasure talking to Hsien and getting to know the history of her family. She also shares many interesting and useful tips on how to keep long-distance relationships, not only with a partner but friends as well.
