Pageant queen or recovering tomboy? How about both? Hello! My name is Pam and I will be contestant #1 in the 2019 Miss Chinese Chicago Pageant. Even though we have just begun, I’m already starting to learn how femininity and strength are not mutually exclusive, contrary to societal expectations. Through my platform, I am empowering young professional women in STEM to lead and develop into future community leaders for Chicago. Looking forward to sharing my experiences and stories with y’all on August 31st---see you there!
