President & CEO, Korean Community Services of Metropolitan New York

Ms. Linda Lee’s commitment to helping others and leading to sustainable change in the Korean community makes her an unsung hero. She devotes more time and energy during COVID-19 to ensure her staff stays connected, working towards a more efficient and sustainable organization that supports hundreds of families in various programs. Ms. Lee’s dedication and caring extend to other areas of her life, as a mother of two and as a visionary trying to enact change at the city level as she runs for city council. In her campaign, she says, ”I believe who we are as a community is defined by how we take care of those who paved the way for us and how we invest in improving the quality of life for future generations.”
