大家好!我叫何盈欣,我跟唐人街關注組工作非常感謝!我當義工參加了關注組一年左右,而跟別的社區小組組織 (華埠行動小組及青年長者合作組)。我今年跟關注組成員過得很快樂,結識了新朋友,爲了保護唐人街的低收入生意及居民。我知道這一份工作不容易,但是我很興奮跟關注住一起奮鬥,壯大力量!

Hi everyone! My name is 何盈欣 Beverly Ho, and I’m so honored and happy to be on staff with the 唐人街關注組 Chinatown Concern Group! I’ve been involved with the group for around a year now, as well as with 青年長者合作組 Youth for Chinese Seniors and 華埠行動小組Chinatown Action Group. Getting to know CCG has been amazing; their superstar personalities, struggles, values, and victories! I know it’ll be challenging and hard work, but I’m excited to be learning and growing and fighting with Concern Group and CCAP!
