Boeing Presents a Taste of Asia

Did you know May is Asian Pacific Heritage Month? Not gonna lie.. LOVE going to these events because the food is so darn good. When my friend Michelle Sam (Go Hornets!) asked me to speak at Boeing’s event I had to say yes. As the daughter of a military officer and someone who grew up abroad… it was my kind of crowd.
