Over the years, she has helped spearhead many educational and public awareness projects on the history of Asia-Pacific War such as the making of docudrama “Iris Chang – the Rape of Nanking”, created youth empowerment initiatives such as research internship with universities worldwide, humanity-focused summer camps for international students. She has made many presentations at high schools, universities, student and teacher conferences, in different communities and at various international conferences on behalf of ALPHA Education. She has been serving as the Executive Director of the organization and Vice Chair of the ALPHA Board on pro bono basis since 2005.
