2015.048.001 Interview with Chester Lee & Michael Lee, September 30, 2015

Both Chester and Michael are extremely active in the Chinatown community. Michael heads the nonprofit group Apex and is a community leader in Chinatown. Chester has also worked with many nonprofits and believes it is important for people to share their gifts and help others. He views giving as a habit formed slowly over time that can have a large impact on various organizations. Michael attributes his inspiration in nonprofit work to witnessing his parents work in the community and his own experience on the Committee of 100. Chester advises Chinese Americans to remain grounded in the values they brought with them when they immigrated. He believes that staying true to their values will allow immigrants to succeed in a society that may not immediately accept them. Michael also hopes that the community will not be afraid to ask for help and will embrace other cultures and people to gain new information and become more prepared to succeed.
