Women of Color EMPOWERED (event held today at the Hong Kong Restaurant)
women of power: building bridges
Honored: Pearl Leung
Pearl was born in Hong Kong and immigrated to the United States with her family at the age of 6. After graduating high school, she decided to attend the University of Washington without ever visiting Seattle. Three short years later, Pearl made lifelong friends and mentors while working on Governor Locke's campaign, managing Representative Velma Veloria's re-election campaign, and working with inter-city high school students at Upward Rebound.
Still passionate about her undergraduate work in American Ethnic Studies, Pearl sought a different path to impact change by obtaining a Masters in Urban Planning, eventually taking her skills to Harlem. Her path has led her to her career at Vulcan, Inc. where Pearl revels in being a professional bridge builder. As the community relations manager, Pearl has been instrumental in working with nonprofit organizations to advance their goals and mission.
This is a prestigious award and one greatly deserved.
Pearl is our liaison with Vulcan who has been a sponsor of the Greater Queen Anne Chamber for years.
I also am honored to work with Pearl as a colleague in our chamber events and planning and also call her my friend.
