Share Your Passion

Recently MnDOT Commissioner Tom Sorel invited employees to participate in “We are MnDOT:  Share Your Passion,” a forum for employees to share their interests with each other, by submitting a 125-word description and a photo of their passion. The profiles are then posted on the walls of each floor where employees work.

I thought it was a wonderful idea. Sharing your passion will help employees learn a little bit more about each other, get better connected and more engaged with each other, therefore help build stronger community and relationships within the department.

This is what I came up with for my passion profile. I wrote more, but had to cut down to 125 words:

Reading, learning, writing and blogging are my #1 passion. I write about whatever comes to my mind, hence my Woodbury Bulletin Column “On My Mind” which is an Areavoices blog now.

My #2 passion is healthy and green living. I love gardening and walking.

As a citizen of the world (grew up in China, went to graduate school in Germany, and living in US since 1991), I travel a lot. In summer 2012, I visited New York, Princeton, Philadelphia, Chicago; Germany, Hungary, Italy, France and UK.

I love taking pictures, won Woodbury Photo Contest twice.

I love volunteering and getting involved in community, graduated from the 1st class of Woodbury Citizens Academy, and was a founding member of Minnesota Jinglun Chinese School.

Never stop learning!

What is your passion? Share it with others!
