June 18th was the first day I attended Urban Institute. At first I did not know what to expect from this program. I quickly got alone with everyone from the program thanks to the activity during the class. Every participant's education and family background is different, which makes this program even more compelling.
Gordon Chin, the founder of CCDC, gave us a tour around Chinatown. Thanks to the tour I not only got to learn the history of Chinatown, but also experienced the strong sense of community here. Thanks to Gordon we were able to enjoy the stunning view of San Francisco on the Rooftop of the I Hotel. I am looking forward to what I can learn and see from this program.
