The Award categories include Art, Community Service, Education, Medicine, Business, and Government. Hosted by Assemblyman Ted Lieu, the gala included honorees such as Julia Tam, Dr. Shyun Jeng, and Congresswoman Dr. Judy Chu, the first Chinese women in Congress. Clipper Corporation’s Founder and CEO Lina Hu received the Leadership Award in Business.
Hu says, “I am so grateful and deeply honored to receive the 2010 Business Award from the South Bay Chinese Woman’s Association, an organization promoting women’s leadership and a recognized leader in the South Bay area of Los Angeles. Belief in yourself, encompassed with dedication and persistence are keys in leading you to success. Receipt of this award has more than added to my philosophy that if you have a dream and try for it you will succeed, no matter what.”
