Wendy immigrated to the US from China when she was twelve years old. Her humble, blue-collar immigrant background helped her appreciate the courage and tenacity of refugees and see the talents they can bring to America. In 2016, Wendy co-founded NOVA Friends of Refugees, a grassroots coalition dedicated to welcoming, assisting, and advocating for refugees. This 1,500-member coalition helps refugees access social services and transition smoothly to their new country. The importance of community engagement in this effort helped her shape the mission of One Journey.
