Cher Wang, born in 1958, was the daughter of Formosa Plastic Group President Wang Yung-ching and his second wife, Liao Jiao. She is the third daughter of the eight daughters in the family. She has chosen her father as her role model since childhood and formed a tenacious and brave character.

Wang studied economics in University of California, Berkeley, and stayed with an American  family in San Francisco. She was the only Chinese student in the school at that time.

Wang conquered her loneliness by going to the library, staying in the dormitory working on her assignments, or reading books.
