"I've dedicated myself to Justice, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion by first recognizing that a change needed to be made at CU Boulder. When I came to CU Boulder, I didn't find my place right away. I felt that it was incredibly difficult for me to find people that had a similar background as myself. That's when I found Asian Unity. Since then, I've built the club up in the best way I could as an executive board member and president. I reached out as far as I could to ensure that everyone within and outside of Asian Unity felt welcomed and happy with their spot at CU Boulder. Club numbers grew from 40 members to beyond 150 members.
Beyond that, I made efforts to provide unity beyond just the Asian community. As an executive team in the summer of 2020, we created a week-long campaign to provide social support to the BLM campaign. In this week alone, we got positive feedback from university clubs across the nation, including 26 universities and 4,750 participants, and generated $16,500 to be donated to various support groups. I realized just how much stronger we could stand if we fought for justice and equality together. As a minority, life can be difficult in so many different ways, so I've dedicated myself to standing up for my people when the time comes."
