Introducing Emilyn Teh

I am honored to have the opportunity to introduce one of my closest friends, Emilyn Teh, as the newest member of the Lady Code team. I befriended Emilyn while we were both students at Virginia Commonwealth University in 2010. We discovered that we had a lot in common: we were passionate about improving our community, we held leadership positions, we were involved in many of the same organizations and activities, we had a multi-cultural background, and we had ambitious plans for the future. We formed a close friendship immediately. Although I left to spend two semesters abroad, and Emilyn transferred to Cornell University, we have maintained our friendship through the years. Upon meeting Stefania during her recent visit to Miami, Florida, the three of us decided that Emilyn would be a powerful addition to Lady Code. Emilyn will be a contributor to Lady Code and she will be posting every weekend.
