I volunteered hours in my spare time in social events and photography groups, helping to organize numerus successful events and making contributions to newsletters with event photos. After I moved to Bay Area, one of the largest biotech professional organizations that caught my attention is CABS. I have been doing volunteer jobs since then as an EC member in Public Relation & Communication Committee and very recently as a co-chair in Social Life Committee (SLC), involving extensively in successful activities such as taking event photos, recruiting speakers and fund raising for CABS’s Annual BioPacific Conference, organizing Chinese New Year Party, annual dragon boat race, summer BBQ events and assisting the organization of virtual activities during pandemic, etc. I was deeply pleased and honored to receive the outstanding service award in 2018.
