HTC Corporation Chairwoman Cher Wang, Speaks of Her Life and Christian Testimony
By Li Xin Rong, Crossmap On May 4, 2013
As the daughter of late Wang Yung-ching, Taiwan's petrochemical industrial giant and one of Taiwan's wealthiest people, HTC Co-founder and chairman Cher Wang in her early days, bearing the burdens imposed on her by external and familial reputational pressures, fought with all her might with the world; but following her life renewal, she is content to hide under the rock of God's protection, to fully live out herself, and to live a life that glorifies God.
Growing up in a wealthy and well-known family, Wang has never hid under the umbrella of the family business; she started a legendary new page in Taiwanese high-tech world with her partners and claims that her success is all God's grace; known by the world to be "the wealthiest woman in Taiwan" who is always in simple athletic attire, she does not chase after brand names, and is very content in being simple and free.
When speaking about the hardships during the developmental stages of her career and about the miraculous blessings that stem from God's guidance and protection, Wang's eyes always radiate with joy and excitement. She created the Taiwanese "small risk, big gains" miracle of VIA Technologies and is co-founder of tech giant HTC Corporations, one of the top three smart-phone and tablet provider in the world, besides Samsung and Apple.
The path of faith
Cher Wang, sporting shoulder-length straight hair and small-framed spectacles, is very people-friendly. When speaking of her experience in search for faith, she replied in her usual mono-toned, straight-forward manner. She has never been afraid to discuss the ups and downs and struggles from within, "I followed my family in my belief in God and attended Sunday school and Sunday services. I got baptized at 13 years old, because I was touched during a retreat, but did not continue in the pursuit of faith. I left alone to the United States for education when I was 15 or 16 years old, and you could say that I gradually left God." She said bashfully, "I might have gone to church on Sundays, but I was mostly late, or left early, and I mostly made up stories. I knew that I needed to pray before bed, that it was important to study the scriptures, but I never seriously read the Bible through even once. You could say that my life was not really transformed."

"However, God never gave up on me," Wang said gratefully. "God loves everyone through His special way. I often thank Him in my prayers, because He loves me so much. He used Himself to bring me back to follow Him." Testifying on how God has guided her and changed her many times, she raised her voice suddenly, "In this path of faith, He has let me experience a little bit of blessings at first, then gave me some trials and tribulations, and then let me experience His miraculous guidance and works; in these ups and downs/gives and takes, my faith has gradually grown. And on this day, the bigger the trials, the stronger my faith becomes and the greater the joy that comes after experiencing God. I know how intricate His intentions are and feel that I need to grasp onto His words every day," she said firmly.
