I focus on the intersection of policy and the AANHPI community, and advocate for issues that impact AANHPIs across the country. I also spend time engaging youth in public service on the Board of the Conference on Asian Pacific American Leadership (CAPAL), amongst other community organizing efforts.

Previously, I worked to engage and activate AANHPI voters at Asian and Pacific Islander American Vote (APIAVote). Prior to moving to D.C., I studied Sociology and Government at Wesleyan University, where I chaired the Asian American Student Collective and taught a course on Asian American history.

I'm proudly born and raised in the San Gabriel Valley outside of Los Angeles.

Even though our work is metrically about how many voters we can register, how many people vote in elections, or the data we collect, what’s more important is that it’s erasing the stigma of being engaged in the political process, while also building the next generation of leaders.
