Hopeful that me and my friends can come together (even during the pandemic :) ) to raise some money for CPA/CYI!
Please support me + frienddos in participating in the Chinatown Bikeathon for the Chinese Youth Initiative!
Personally for me, CYI has helped make me the awesome person I am today. It's helped me learn to become a confident leader and to see how I can make change in the world! I learned about the community and people in Chinatown and I have learned to be able to stand up for myself and ideas.
Going into college, CYI was important for helping me gain a better perspective to inequities and social justice. I'm grateful to have continued to be involved with CYI/CPA through coordinating the program one summer and coming back to volunteer!
Because of how much my involvement in CYI has impacted me to grow as a person, I want to raise money to help sustain a program that will help other future activists and organizers grow!
