Meet Bonnie Tang!

We celebrate Bonnie's academic achievements in working towards her degree from Stony Brook!

We support her work at the New York City Asian American Student Conference to connect professionals and share their stories with high school and college students from New York City and beyond.

We are inspired by her dedication and mission to better the Cambodian and greater Asian American community through her leadership and volunteer work.


"I am a native New Yorker of Teochew-Cambodian descent. I'm currently an undergraduate student at Stony Brook University, majoring in Political Science. I am entering into my fourth year as a part of NYCAASC and am always excited for what NYCAASC brings every year." - Bonnie Tang, Co-Director
