I am a third generation Chinese American from Honolulu, Hawaii. My siblings and I were the first generation in our family to attend college. I seek to equitably engage communities in public decision-making processes, especially communities who have been historically underinvested in. Some of these processes include neighborhood assessments, visioning for general plans, area plans and urban designs.

Internships Available for CPR Oral History Project

NOTE: The Application Period Has Closed.

The California Planning Roundtable (CPR), a nonprofit organization of urban planning professionals, has initiated an oral history project focused on identifying how past planning practices have impacted communities of color, as related by those people who have experienced the impacts.  The project looks to give voice to people who ordinarily may be reluctant to share their stories, to raise public awareness, and to suggest how planning professionals and policy makers can change their practices in response.

CPR is offering two paid internships to students currently enrolled in graduate programs to assist with the project.   The internships are available beginning in early 2021.

The intern job announcement, including instructions on how to apply, is available here.

The application deadline is February 14, 2021.
