Title: Events and Programs Coordinator
What do you do at the chamber?
I make sure the events run smoothly and since we have so many different events, it’s a lot of logistics!
What has been your most memorable experience at the chamber?
The 21st Annual SACC Dinner (2014) was the first event I worked on as an intern. It was cool to see everyone working as a team to make something successful.
What is something you will do this year that you have never done before?
Travel abroad! I will be going on a tour of Europe after graduation. I can’t wait! It will be my first time out of the country. I’m excited to get a taste of diverse cultures and experiences.
If the Asian Chamber had a yearbook, which superlative WE think she would win:
Joe: Miss Congeniality
Matt: Most Likely to Peel Her Banana Incorrectly (Correct method: Stem first)
Jonathan: Most Likely to Roll Her Eyes at Matt
If you could have any superhero power, what would it be?
The power of teleportation. I could get some real Italian gelato in the blink of an eye!
What is something you’ve learned at the chamber?
Over communicate. It’s just something that one cannot do too much of since everyone needs to know what’s going on in the workplace.
What celebrity have you always wanted to meet?
I would really like to meet Justin Timberlake. He seems super fun and down to Earth. I would love to have back stage passes to one of his concerts! Other than that, I think Tina Fey is awesome and would have a lot of cool stories to tell about her experience in showbiz.
What has been one of your proudest moments?
One of my proudest moments would be successfully managing my own small business last summer. I built my own clientele, hired my own employees, and managed my profits and expenses. It was incredibly stressful but very rewarding and I learned an incredible amount from this experience. I’m proud that I stuck with it and didn’t stop until I met my goals.
If you could travel anywhere for free, where would you go and why?
I would go to Australia! There is so much culture and wildlife to see. I would love to see the Great Barrier Reef and have a real adventure!
