Soon after moving to Seattle, I fell in love with Pike Place Market. I would go there almost every week for the first year I lived in here. I have a passion for community and have done a lot of volunteering with the Ronald McDonald House, various group events with Food Lifeline and Legal Voice. I am also a huge advocate for women of color to have strong interests in STEM. By daytime, I am Product Design Engineer at Oculus VR trying to connect peopleacross the globe. I love to read, travel and eat all the flavors the world has to offer.

It is through community and connecting with others that Pike Place Market Foundation and I have found each other! I am amazed by how much the Foundation contributes to keep the soul of Seattle alive for not just our visitors but for the individuals and families who need us the most. It’s definitely an iconic part of what Seattle is and what resonates with me.
