Focus Taiwan: Tsai ‘human first, president second,’ viral vloggers say after meeting her

Taipei, Dec. 5 (CNA) Two popular vloggers, who stayed overnight at the Presidential Office, met with President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) at her office on Thursday and said afterward that she was “awesome” and was a “human first, president second.”

Nuseir Yassin and Alyne Tamir, who are a couple and have a combined following of 15 million on social media, were invited to meet Tsai after spending a night at the Presidential Office Building, which was part of a program held by several government agencies in Taiwan

His partner Tamir, an American-Israeli who is an advocate for gender equality, animal rights and environmental protection, said Tsai was “awesome.”

“I really like her on a personal level,” Tamir said. “She’s very calm, but smart and collected, and also obviously manages to be incredibly efficient and high-level functioning at the same time, which is difficult.”
