From Queens, New York, Grace is a proud daughter of immigrants and a middle child. She received her B.A. in English and International Studies from Vassar College where she attended as a QuestBridge Scholar and as a first-generation, low-income student. There, she sought to create and hold spaces for her fellow students of color and founded the Vassar Law Club, the Vassar Law and Society Journal, and Portrait, the college’s student magazine by and for AAPI-identifying students. Since graduating in June of 2021, Grace has supported the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund’s litigation and policy advocacy in the areas of educational opportunities, employment and housing discrimination, voting rights, and criminal justice. Grace looks forward to bringing all that she learns through this Fellowship to her work at the LDF.
