Rose Parade 2019

In Completed Projects on 01/12/2020 at 10:44 PM

On December 29th, 2019, from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm, our volunteers  worked tirelessly on our next Rose Parade float, with the theme American Heroes. Our sponsor was the Chinese American Heritage Foundation and our builder was Fiesta Parade Floats. The volunteers were happy that they could be a part of something bigger that would be broadcasted on TV as well as seen by around a million pairs of prying eyes on a cold morning. We were given T-shirts, and lead to the warehouse where some people were already working. We colored the float with dried cut up flowers and leaves. I got to work on some of the leaves that were used to line the deck of the ship USS Indianapolis. Most of the older volunteers went up the scaffolding surrounding the float to work on the spinning prism in the center of the float. All of the volunteers were proud of their work on the float. Some people came for the second shift only, or the first shift only, but everyone in CACAYC participated in creating the float. Even though we didn’t win any prizes for our float, we can always learn from our mistakes. I really liked the theme of our float, “American Heroes” because it was dedicated to war veterans, specifically Chinese-American war Veterans, and was like a moving memorial for all the wars that Chinese-American’s had fought in.

Resume Writing Workshop 10/27/19

In Completed Projects on 11/03/2019 at 6:34 PM
Our participants from San Fernando Valley CACAYC were Trevor Trinh, Amy Chen, Alex Lu, Reina Ikeda, Yuto Ikeda, Christian Vela, Belinda Vela, Aaron Ellis. We arrived at the Monterey Park Library for the resume workshop. There was a good turnout of people from the local area, showing the preexisting interest in the workshop. The organizer was from the West San Gabriel Branch CACAYC and the main presenter/speaker was Elizabeth Wu from Panda Restaurant Group. She walked us through a very easy to follow step-by-step worksheet guide to writing some of our first resumes, going over information such as personal identification, career objectives, formatting, experience, and others. Throughout the presentation, she also gave advice on topics such as the importance of keywords and experience. She even offered several resources to land a first job, and spent some of her own time helping look over resumes. Overall, the workshop was  an excellent introduction to the working world and how people can present themselves to it.
