Meet the Founder and Board President of Everyone for Veterans, Dr. Theresa Cheng.
What’s the best advice you were ever given?
My mother always pointed out the importance of being happy no matter how difficult things are.
What’s your favorite movie or show and why?
I like a lot of movies and shows, but Forrest Gump is a very memorable one. The character, Lieutenant Dan introduced me to the realistic aspect of veteran life that is all around us.
What’s your favorite meal?
My favorite meal is a hawker noodle dish from Malaysia.
What’s your favorite vacation destination and why?
There are so many great vacation destinations, however, one of my favorites is in Gandoca, Costa Rica, a beach in a low income area. We get to work with preserving turtle eggs by patrolling the beaches at night and moving the eggs laid to safe areas. It was hard work but fantastic to learn about and contribute to how the community turned the economy of consuming turtle eggs to preserving them.
The goal of our blog is to keep everyone updated on what Everyone for Veterans has been working on.
