I am thrilled to be part of an internal NBC event that included Julie Chu, Abby Marks, and Abby Chin.
This was spearheaded by Caroline Delfin (Executive Assistant To The Chairman, NBC Sports Group at NBCUniversal Media, LLC) and Liz Eng (Senior Director, Content Integration at NBC Sports Group) who are part of NBCUniversal APA (Asian Pacific American):
The other day, I came across your new project, “Asian Pacific American Female Athletes: Changing the Game.”
First, I have to tell you how excited I am that this book exists and thank you for writing it. Growing up, I wish I had something like this as I entered into the world of school athletics. AAPI girls and boys (and parents) around the nation are going to find so much joy and comfort in this book. Seeing is believing, right?
Second, in celebration of its upcoming release, would you be open to doing a virtual Q&A with me and Liz for our NBC Sports and broader NBCUniversal APA members? Ideally, we would also bring in one of the incredible athletes you featured. We’re thinking of and have the contact info for Julie Chu!
Abby Marks heads up an internal group, In the Parenthood, for NBC.
Abby Chin is an NBC correspondent for Boston Sports, specifically the Celtics.
Julie Chu is featured in Changing the Game:
Julie Chu (Chinese & Puerto Rican American), a hockey player, is the first Asian-American female to compete for the United States in the Winter Olympics for a sport other than figure skating. She took home three silver medals and one bronze medal from five Olympics.
Here is our conversation with NBC Universal: APA (Asian Pacific American) ITP (In The Parenthood) Present a Conversation with Julie Chu & Mia Wenjen, moderated by Abby Chin.
Thank you for including my books!
