Susan Lee and her family immigrated to New York from Hong Kong when she was six years old. Growing up in the Lower East Side, a working class neighborhood that has been the root of powerful movements for decades – in which she and her brother were two of the only four Asian American students in their elementary school – has shaped her view of New York and her belief in the potential of collective power. Her parents, who continue to live in Loisaida today, strongly believe education is the pathway for immigrants to achieve the American Dream. Susan graduated from Brooklyn Technical High School and earned her Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Barnard College, Columbia University.Show More
