During the college, she wrote her first song titled "Someone", which later appears on her 2002 album, Start. She also attended LWS School of Music, and her vocal talent was discovered by her music teacher Lee Wei Song, who later introduced Sun to Samuel Chou, the chairman of Warner Music Taiwan at the time.
