Jimmy Huang, born in 1962 in Erhlin Town, Changhua County, studied in
the Erhlin junior high school (became Erhlin Senior High School in
2002). Jimmy Huang had good academic performance, saying his math never
got less than 99 points. After graduating from junior high, Jimmy Huang
was admitted to Taichung First Senior High School and Taichung Teachers
College. His family hoped that he would attend college, but he chose
Taichung First Senior High School.
Jimmy said that he often wore underwear, shorts and flops to bookstores
to read books for an entire afternoon in high school; for example,
Sartre and Camus. He admitted that he was very happy, and hoped one day
he would an intellectual.
He once said, "People living in the world should feel with their hearts,
interact with the environment to interact, go along with an atmosphere,
and have fun." At that time, he followed his heart—the desire for new
knowledge and change, to choose the Taichung First Senior High School.
His character has been affecting the choices of his future.
Jimmy Huang studied in the Department of Foreign Languages of Tunghai
University, and attended “Dongfeng Society,” which introduced foreign
cultures. Dongfeng Society had publications and organized academic
lectures. There were groups of "reading group", "current affairs team,"
literary group," "movie team," and "music appreciation group” with
regular discussions. They criticized social phenomena and learned logic
and reasoning. Jimmy got to know many German films and classic
black-and-white films, which affected his future. He was also the
elected president of the society with his excellent leadership and
communication skills until his graduation.
He pointed out that he served as the president of class for 11 years
since elementary school till senior high, and served as the president of
society in college. Perhaps his experience is one of the important
reasons why he is a good producer.
