How do you want to impact Pittsburgh?
I would like to make local government more accessible to residents through civic technology and innovation in my current role at the City of Pittsburgh. I’d also like to continue starting conversations around culture, diversity, and information exchange in our global world through food with my charitable giving Chinese cooking business.

What is your favorite part of Pittsburgh?
Pittsburgh is where I discovered my voice in local government, was able to start my business, and have found my first Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) community.
