Jewels of Asia

It was a night that sparkled! The Asian American Chamber of Commerce held it’s annual business awards and this year the theme was “Jewels of Asia”. It was a wonderful way to honor Asian American business leaders who have made contributions to our community. A big group of local leaders attended including Fairfax County Sheriff Stacey Kincaid and Fairfax County Supervisor Sharon Bulova. I was honored to emcee an event that really makes me proud. Shout out to Grace Han Wolf and Jenet Ahn for putting together another successful show! Photos by Joey Darley.

Washington Women in Public Relations (WWPR) named Olivia Doherty, Laura Hornbuckle and Jennifer Myers winners of the 2012 Emerging Leaders Awards (ELA). The third annual ELA honors rising stars, ages 23-30, in the public relations and communications field for their professional accomplishments. I want to say a big thanks to the board for allowing me to share my thoughts on grooming our future leaders in the communication biz!
