Ellen Young

This week, I had the honor of taking a picture of one of my role models, Ellen Young. Although she was unfortunately not reelected to State Assembly, she was still selected to give a speech because she is still an inspiration to many.

Chinatown has also held a special place in Ellen´s heart as well. When giving one of her speeches, she talked of memories of Columbus Park. Ellen and Bonnie used to go there to talk about their dreams and how they aspired to be someone...

For Chinese Ameircans, Chinatown touches our lives. Chinatown is an ethnic neighborhood in which many of our families have come through. It´s also been a place where we have been able to keep our culture alive and meet other Chinese Americans like us. It´s important that we remember to pay tribute to the place where we were able to build our dreams.
