Haipin, the Student's Wife: A common immigrant, a hardworking citizen depicts the story of an immigrant woman who starts her adult life as a schoolteacher but slowly transforms into a workaholic worker, a devoted student wife, and a lovely mother in the promised land. As a child, Haipin was the spoiled daughter of a successful businessman in Manila. But she threw away her privileged background to marry a poor soldier working his way through college in Taiwan. Then, as an F2 student spouse, she supported her husband financially while he worked through college in the United States. She turned no job offer down, seeing them all as valuable opportunities. For her tireless efforts, every employer she ever worked for awarded her with countless accolades. With her hard work, love, and understanding, this amazing woman helped her husband earn college degrees and secure his career in teaching and administration, as well as guide her children to success. The story of Haipin is another kind of American Dream--a strong family bound by ties of love and understanding.
