Tsai family A little bit about my family:

My nuclear family

My parents are Thomas and Yu-mei Tsai. I have a twin brother, Gregory Tsai, and a sister, Angela Tsai.

Our origin

My parents are from Taiwan. They emigrated to the U.S. in the late 1960s.

Our residences

Upon my mother’s arrival in America, my parents went to live in the Bronx in New York City. My brother Greg and I were born in 1970 in Harlem, which is why we both have "soul." We moved to Hamilton, New Jersey in 1973 and then to Lawrenceville, New Jersey in 1974, where we lived for 13 years. My sister Angela was born in 1981. In 1986, our family moved to Princeton, New Jersey. While our parents still live in Princeton, we kids have grown up, left home, and moved all over the United States.

Our careers

Our extended family

Although some of my parents’ siblings have lived in the U.S. for periods of time, none of them have stayed. However, some of their children have emigrated here. My cousins William Huang, Jack Huang, and Alice Wu, all of whom are on my mother’s side, live in the U.S.

  • William is a physician specializing in pulmonology. He and his wife Jolene have a little girl they named Andrea, born December 8, 2002. They now live in the Boston area.
  • Jack is some sort of techie working for IBM in New York City.
  • Alice is a fourth-year medical student at the UC Davis School of Medicine.
