Fang Ling (Joanna) H.

Chinatown was my first home when I arrived in the United States on my 7th birthday. I went on to spend most of childhood here, creating joyful, unforgettable memories. Even after I moved to Brooklyn in my early teens, I continued at my school in Chinatown and remained active in the community, including taking part in youth programs at the Chinatown YMCA and CPC (Chinese-American Planning Council). I’m thrilled by the opportunity to serve the place I’ll always consider “home.”
