I support Alhambra Source as often as I can because I believe a free and independent press is vital to the democratic process. No other news outlet with high journalistic standards consistently covers the stories and issues that matter to our community.

BUSINESSWOMAN AND PHILANTHROPISTS UNDERWRITES A TRIP TO TAIWAN FOR BOYS & GIRLS CLUB OF WEST SAN GABRIEL VALLEY KIDS

Alhambra , CA United States

Vicky Chang is about to change 10 high school teens’ lives. The successful businesswoman and philanthropist is underwriting a trip to Taiwan for 10 teens from the Boys & Girls Club of West San Gabriel Valley. The teens will be going to Taiwan from July 23 to July 30. The purpose of the trip of a lifetime is to show the teens a world beyond the Club walls and outside their immediate community. Ms. Chang, already a dedicated and a longtime Club donor, wanted to do more for Club members: she wants to inspire the kids to dream big.

Ms. Chang shared, “When I was young, my parents allowed me to travel to India, Vietnam, and all over Asia. I think it’s good for kids to travel and see different places and people. I also want to introduce these kids to the beauty of Taiwan and my people.”

The teens were selected through an essay contest asking how the trip would impact their lives. Many of the teens shared how, were it not for the Club, they would likely not leave their neighborhood. Thanks to the generosity of Ms. Chang, the lucky teens will experience international travel. Kaitelyn Ng is looking forward to learning “the diversity and the culture of Taiwan.” Kaitelyn will be joined by other Club members from the Monterey Park, La Puente, and Ramona Gardens Clubhouses.

In addition to the educational components of the trip, Ms. Chang is excited to share the food culture of Taiwan. Her face lights up when talking about the food buffets, street food, and the night market. And there is no better tour guide for the trip than Ms. Chang, whose family is also in the Travel business. Her son, Roy, will also be helping out with the tours, in particular, the city experience. They will be joined by the Club’s Executive Director, JR Dzubak, and Club staff, Priscilla Alfaro.
