COVER STAR

曾馨瑩|純真之心The Selfless Devotion

時節進入初冬,拍攝封面這天氣候卻相當暖和宜人,像是呼應這次拍攝主角曾馨瑩給人的印象:溫暖又舒服。相處一天下來,原來真的有人可以散發出如陽光般的暖度。

擁有舞蹈背景的曾馨瑩,在拍攝當天早上,穿著剪裁俐落且略帶個性的無袖西裝外套、簡單的上衣搭配一條黑色牛仔褲,輕鬆又不失有型,以一派的優雅姿態緩步進入攝影棚,渾身散發著毫不做作的真誠與隨和。在一整天忙碌的拍攝工作中,她全程帶著笑意親切與人互動,談話間始終自然誠摯、平易近人。

The day we shot our cover photo was warm and comfortable. The weather is similar to the image of our cover star Tseng Hsin-Ying for today – warm and kind. We got to know each other today, which I am amazed by the warmth and genuine that she spreads around her.

As a professional dancer, Tseng Hsin-Ying wears a sleeveless vest with clear cuts, paired with a simple shirt and black jeans. She appears casual but stylish when she enters the studio at a slow and elegant pace. She gives others an honest and cordial feeling. In our studio work that lasts the whole day, she always smiles and interacts with others, she also seems truthful and patient when speaking to others.

低調處事正面思維

無論是在鏡頭前或是出席各大活動曾馨瑩,總是維持著優雅儀態,習舞二十多年的她認為自己的性格與維持優雅體態,與從小習舞有關,她說:「因為從小接觸舞蹈,不同的舞蹈有不同的特性,例如民族舞蹈有一些傳統女性的韻味,或是芭蕾舞必須保持優雅,長年習舞也必須隨時深呼吸、維持身體挺直,這些對性格、體態都有很大的影響。」私底下的曾馨瑩喜歡凡事簡單,平時自己最愛穿牛仔褲搭配球鞋,真實的個性也同樣低調不好出鋒頭,她這麼形容自己:「我不喜歡把事情想得太複雜,喜歡凡事簡單一點,每天過得開心。我常常跟朋友聊天說,我們一定要有正面的能量,因為我覺得正能量可以影響所有的人生觀,也可以幫助做任何事的時候保持愉悅的心情。」或許就是這種正能量的思維,讓她不僅擁有高EQ,還擁有對人包容體貼的開闊胸襟。曾馨瑩本人更是相當細膩貼心,除了拍攝時的高配合度外,還自己為所有的工作同仁準備點心,拍照空檔更不忘叮囑大家記得要吃東西,相當親和的她有著如少女般純真開朗的特質。

知恩惜福更有福

深居簡出不好交際的曾馨瑩,生活裡最大的享受就是花很長的時間陪伴三個孩子,包括幫小孩洗澡、陪他們學習或一起參加休閒活動,對她來說這是她現階段生活裡最甜蜜的時光。高EQ的曾馨瑩即便與自己的小孩相處,掌握愛的教育之餘也以理性溝通為原則,她會花很長的時間與小孩溝通而並非一昧的責罵,尤其她格外重視孩子的品行與禮節:「我覺得品行跟有禮貌非常重要,如果他們不禮貌,我會非常嚴格地告訴他們這樣是不對的。」從曾馨瑩堅定的口氣中可以感受到,這同時也是她自己做人處事的準則。因此當馨瑩提到與婆婆相處一直都非常融洽,十幾年來從來沒有不愉悅的時刻,也就讓人更能理解他們的相處就如同外界所知的是相當和諧,甚至她在分享時還語帶感激的口吻:「我很幸運,從我第一次見到我婆婆到現在,她一直都對我非常好,到現在她看到我還是會一直讚美我,我真的很感恩她十幾年來一直對我這麼好,她甚至到現在還會親自寫卡片給我,今年生日我也收到她親手製作的卡片跟花。多年來我一直跟我婆婆相處非常舒服,所以也很享受跟她相處的時光,我覺得自己很幸運也很幸福。」這樣甜蜜幸福的婆媳關係,或許不是幸運,而是曾馨瑩懂得知足與感恩的好個性所帶來的。

長年關懷弱勢投入慈善

因為不喜歡複雜,所以儘量生活保持單純簡單;因為性格謙和惜福,所以她願意並持續付出與回饋。生活重心放在家庭與孩子的曾馨瑩,其實也常年從事慈善公益。「我覺得自己從小到大都很幸運,遇到很多貴人,大家都對我很好、受很多人的愛護,所以讓我更想要多分享一點、為社會再多付出一些」抱著感恩的心情她這麼說。馨瑩認為台灣需要更多好的能量在社會裡循環,所以她積極投入公益回饋社會,每年生日也會帶著同天生日的女兒一同出席公益活動。今年生日也無例外,馨瑩帶著小女兒與老公連袂出席「照亮幸福的微光」公益活動,這是她與永齡基金會一同捐款支持台北市視障者家長協會所成立的視障音樂發展中心,感性善良的她說:「看到那些視障孩子們這麼努力的歌唱、彈琴,心裡真的相當感動。」想著這些孩子們在眼睛看不見的現實條件下辛苦的學習、努力的活著,更堅定讓她要持續投身慈善這一條路的決心。

事實上,曾馨瑩從學生時代就開始從事公益活動,當時能幫助的力量雖然微薄,但馨瑩還是盡可能以她的能力替清寒學童免費上舞蹈課,甚至還為帕金森氏症患者設計一系列協助他們復健的運動課程,現在的她更是隨時隨地都盡可能地幫助更多的人,這一路始終不變的是她總是低調地不去強調自己參與了哪些慈善公益,多年來藉由永齡基金會或她個人默默支持各種大大小小的公益活動,但有感於現在的社會實在有太多人需要幫助,不管是關心、慰問或金錢,因此她除了盡可能地幫助有需求的人,也會在合適的時機透過各種管道幫這些弱勢團體發聲,希望能引起更多社會人士的關懷且共同關注。

曾馨瑩不止一次說過希望能為社會貢獻一己之力,對她而言付出最大的收穫是「施比受更有福」,她說:「每一次幫助別人,都覺得心情特別愉快,因為覺得自己有能力付出是一件很幸福的事。」

Keeping a Low Profile with Positive Thinking

Whether she is in front of the camera, or attending various political and business events or gather-ings, Tseng Hsin-Ying always appears elegant in all her actions. She believes that her personality and body figure being elegant comes from her dancing education since childhood. She said, “Because I began to dance since I was little, different types of dance consist of different characteristics. Such as folk dance has certain traditional female charm. Ballet dancers must always remain elegant. I used to practice deep breathing to keep my body straight. This has a great influence on my personality and body figure.” Tseng Hsin-Ying said that she prefers everything to remain simple. Normally, she loves to wear jeans with sneakers. She also likes to keep a low profile because of her straightforward personality. She describes herself, “I like to keep things simple so I can live happily every day. I often tell my friends that we must see things positively. I believe that having positive energy can affect our whole perspective on life. It also keeps you in a happy mood no matter what you are doing.” Perhaps it is such positive thinking that has made her into a person with a high EQ, and also one with a tolerate and considerate mind. Tseng Hsin-Ying is a delicate and caring person. Other than her high degree of cooperation in casting, she also prepared snacks for all the staff. Meanwhile she checked in several times to make sure everyone eat in their free time. She is an easy-going person with a kind heart, who is pure at heart and always cheerful like a girl.

Eternally Grateful Heart

Tseng Hsin-Ying is not very used to social events and she does not go out often. She enjoys spending her time with her three children, including bathing, keeping company, playing, and learning with them. For her, this is the sweetest responsibility in her life right now. With a high EQ, Tseng Hsin-Ying other than educating her children with love, Tseng Hsin-Ying also communicates with them in a rational way. She may spend a long time communicating with her children instead of scolding them, and she especially focuses on the behavior and politeness of her children. “I think behavior and politeness are extremely important. If they speak impolitely, I will strictly tell them that they are wrong.” From the strong tone of Tseng Hsin-Ying, I can feel that she stands firm for principles in life. She said that her mother-in-law treats her well, there were never a single fight nor argument between them. Just like we’ve heard, her relationship with her mother-in-law is very close, she said with appreciation, “I am very lucky. Since the first time I met my mother-in-law, and until today she always compliments me. I am so grateful that she has treated me so well for all these years. She even made a birthday cards by hand and send it to me. This year I received a birthday card and flowers from her as usual. For years, I have a comfortable relationship with her, and so I am very happy to accompany her as well, I feel that I am extremely lucky and fortunate.” A sweet and close relationship between her and her mother-in-law, perhaps it is not purely because of luck. It is because Tseng Hsin-Ying knows how to be appreciative and is grateful in all these years.

Engage in Charity Work 

Tseng Hsin-Ying appreciates little things in life, and she tries to keep her life as simple as possible. Her straightforward and honest personality make her treasure the happiness upon her that she is willing to give and continue to contribute to the society. While Tseng Hsin-Ying focuses on her family and children, she has also been contributing to charities for years. “I feel that I have always been lucky in my whole life. I have met many good people, and they have treated me well and helped me a lot. That makes me want to share more with the society,” she said with a grateful mind. Tseng Hsin-Ying believes that Taiwan needs more positive energy to run within the society, which is also the one of the reasons why she actively contributes to charity work. Each year on her birthday, she brings her daughter who has the same birthday with her to attend charity events. This year, as usual, Tseng Hsin-Ying took her youngest and her husband to the charity event “Light Up the Dim Light of Happiness” organized by the Yonglin Foundation to support charity donations that establish a music development center for visually impaired people. Being regardable and kindhearted, she said, “I am deeply moved when I see those visually impaired children singing and playing piano with such great effort.” Knowing that these children are studying and struggling hard to live but that they cannot see with their eyes, Tseng Hsin-Ying feels determined to continue with her work in charity.

In fact, Tseng Hsin-Ying started charity work from the time she was a student. Now she tries to help as many as possible. But she doesn’t like to speak about what kind of charity work she participates in. She has been silently supporting various charity activities for many years now. However, she feels that there are too many people in the society today who need help. Other than offering them care, concern, or money, she tries her best to dedicate as much as possible. She actively helps these groups through various channels and speaks out for them, hoping to draw the attention to more people in the community and offer them help. Tseng Hsin-Ying said that she has mentioned multiple times that she hopes to contribute to society. The best reward for her in charity work is unconditional love and the happiness of helping others. She said, “I feel very happy after helping those in need because it is very fortunate to have the ability to help others.”
