In this week’s episode, we present our amazing colleague Grace Zhang. Grace’s entire journey is littered with illustrations of advocacy. She identifies key moments in her life where a particular encounter or sets of them, I should say, enjoined her to be a factor in the solutions to problems afflicting her community. Her leadership skills are apparent. While in High school, Grace began a free street store in Indiana for homeless people to “shop with dignity,” she asserted. Furthermore, she became a bridge for many people to the healthcare system as a mandarin interpreter at a clinic frequented by Asian immigrants in the Cleveland area. For this and more, tune in and join this episode!
