My name is Selina Li and I am so honored and excited to be working for Asian Community Development Corporation as the new communications intern. I am a rising sophomore at Boston University, majoring in Media Science and minoring in Sociology.
I am an alum of A-VOYCE (ACDC’s youth leadership program) and I also helped lead the A-VOYCE summer youth program as a youth coordinator. I have an immense passion for community organizing and a strong tie to Boston’s Chinatown.
Chinatown has been the origin point as well as an anchor for my immigrant Chinese family. My mother’s first home when she immigrated to America was a small apartment on Hudson street. I received my primary education, found community, and flourished as a person in this neighborhood. It is from the Chinatown non-profit organizations like ACDC that I have learned the power and strength that reside in marginalized communities. And, from my experience as an A-VOYCE youth, I have seen how organizations like ACDC can cultivate empowering and sustainable environments for the benefit of all community members.
I am looking forward to strengthening the impact of ACDC and serving the Asian-American community. I will help with executing ACDC’s media strategy, assist in building ACDC’s digital presence, and work on strengthening relationships with the media.
I’m excited to rejoin the ACDC team and continue supporting the community!
