Why I Am Grateful For Public Schools
A little over 30 years ago, after graduating from Fu Jen law school, I came to the Bay Area to earn an MBA and start a new life. I came alone to the United States as a student. Expenses and restrictions on work were challenges I had to face. For me, education provided the knowledge and credibility to succeed professionally selling real estate. I believe many of the struggling people in our communities will use education to open the door to a better life. Education provides a way for individuals, neighborhoods, cities, and countries to achieve more, to be better.
Selling homes is a fiercely competitive business. Success depends upon skill, hard work, and upon the thoughtful minds of the people in our communities. I’ve donated $50,000 for three years in a row to Partners in Education (a local nonprofit foundation supporting local public schools) so that they can further help our schools.
Although I've been one of the top 3 agents nationwide at Keller Williams for each of the last 3 years, $50,000 a year is a large amount of money to me. Fortunately I am no longer paying college tuition. By helping fund education, I want to help struggling families in our wonderful community.
I hope others will also take money and time from their business and add to the open hearts and open minds of our wonderful community. Please support our schools: papie.org
