Li Xing Story|
My volunteer work with MAACA has greatly contributed to growth my financial career. Being in MAACA is a way for me to stay connected to the culture in an environment that stresses innovation, support and collaboration. MACCA is full of so many smart, creative, driven folks who are constantly doing interesting things. It consistently renews my energy and interest in Asian Culture.
|Through my association with MAACA, I have made great contacts with people, gained a different view into my work, formed a relationship with each family, and developed important professional skills." This experience has made me appreciate all the hard work involved in running the nonprofit Organization ¨CMAACA. I've been more proud of the Asian Festival day which was authorized by local government. Asian Festival day shows that MAACA and its Volunteer group truly care about their community and are willing to invest both time and money to help make a difference.|
