  Lin was born into a Chinese-American family which emigrated from Taiwan,China to the U.S.several years ago.The project is an outgrowth(副产品)of a student community service organization set up by Lin’s father.Their activities include collecting used computers from local communities to donate to underprivileged families.
  Lin’s attention was drawn to the problemof used cooking oil when she attended an exhibition featuring energy crisis solutions in2008.At the exhibition,she became interested in transforming cooking grease into biodiesel fuel.
  Lin noticed that while thrown-away used cooking oil clogged up gutters and sewers,many underprivileged families in the community were burdened with the rising costs of heating in the winter.
  She put two and two together and launched the project with the help of her friends.They worked with local restaurants and Newport Biodiesel,a company that processes used oil,helping restaurants turn used grease into fuel.A company named Guardian Fuel&Energy Co.helps to distribute all the fuel produced by the project to needy families.
  In the past four years,local communities have benefited greatly from Lin’s project,which has also gained local government support.
  Lin has won many awards from the U.S.Government and social organizations for her efforts.This year,she was invited by President Obama to be a guest at the White House.
