Why She’s Interesting: As vice president of community development for MidTown Cleveland, Huang moved to AsiaTown to get closer to the people she serves and has been an integral part of the Stop Asian Hate movement.
Perfect: Huang paints her dream neighborhood as a place for communities to engage and thrive in. “It would also have very well-thought-out public spaces and green spaces where I can go for walks with my family.”
Parenting: Raising a child is no easy feat, especially during a pandemic. But Huang has strong ideas about how to do it. “Kids are really like little people trying to construct themselves and understand the world around them. Be respectful of who they are as people. They’re really innately skilled at understanding the world.”
Travel Bug: Huang jokes that, if she had left for Taiwan in March 2020, her family could’ve ended up staying. She describes it as a place with mountains that has a lot of respect for nature.“People are laid back and like to laugh. It’s always so lively. We’re always thinking about when we’re going to be back there.”
Interesting Fact: If Huang could have only one thing to eat, it would be tofu as long as it could be in all of its forms: soft, fried, egg or with shrimp.
