As the Director of Operations, I help organize and manage aspects of AAPI Youth Rising (including our email, monthly newsletter, and Slack) and ensure everything runs smoothly. I am also the Director of Communications, which means I help the chapter leaders communicate with the board, and help our organization communicate with other organizations. I love being part of AYR because I learn to speak out and stand up for myself, and others in my community. It is important for youth to get involved in their communities because we are the future, and if there is something that you believe is not right, you can do something about it. In my free time, I enjoy practicing judo, playing the French horn, and learning new skills!
