On the evening of Tuesday, April 24th, I attended the annual Asian American Lawyers Association of Massachusetts (AALAM) banquet. Hei La Moon, a restaurant located in the heart of Chinatown, hosted the lovely event.
Ivan K. Fong, who is the General Counsel for the United States Department of Homeland Security, was the highlight of the evening and the guest speaker. With an incredibly impressive background and work history, Attorney Fong keynote speech theme was about Asian Americans breaking barriers. He specifically referenced the New York Knicks basketball player Jeremy Lin as an example of breaking Asian stereotypes and how persistence is the best way to succeed.
Below are two pictures from the fun festivities.
