2023 Tina E Yeh Fellow - Emily Xu (YC '24)

The AAAYA National Board is excited to announce that this year's Tina E Yeh Fellowship will go towards supporting Emily Xu (Yale College Class 2024) in her summer internship with the Chinese Progressive Association (CPA) in San Francisco.

Members of AAAYA established the Tina E. Yeh Community Service Fellowship through the Asian Pacific Fund, a community foundation, in memory of Tina E. Yeh ’83. Since the early 1990s, the program has encouraged Yale undergraduates and recent graduates to become involved in community service through summer internships. Our goal is to nurture the leadership development of students and lend support to nonprofit organizations around the country that provide critical services to poor and disenfranchised communities.

This year's fellow, Emily will be working directly with high school students in the San Francisco area to develop civically engaged youth in their base-building and leadership skills. As a part of CPA, Emily will also support the "Our Healing is in our Hands" campaign, which aims to increase mental health awareness and resources for students of color.

We are excited to support her meaningful work with CPA and look forward to receiving and sharing her end of summer report. For more information on the fellowship please visit:
