LILY UNG 

Some people are born rock stars. We are so grateful that one of them is part of our team! Meet Lily Ung, APWC’s August 2015 Rock Star Volunteer.

To say that she’s a passionate volunteer is an understatement. This year marks her 8th year doing volunteer work for nonprofits. Being a children’s activities volunteer at our shelter, she gives her all to provide a fun learning environment for our children & youth survivors. She keeps them engaged by implementing activities such as making arts and crafts, playing games, and watching movies.

Lily’s impressive creativity and artistic ability extends beyond the children’s activities that she coordinates for APWC! When she’s not volunteering for APWC, she loves writing stories and documenting her life through journaling, scrapbooking, and vlogging.

When asked why she wanted to volunteer at APWC, she shares:

“All I knew then was that I wanted to help. Someone. Something. Somewhere. I wanted to contribute any way I can. Domestic violence, especially in the Asian Pacific community, is something that rarely gets talked about due to fear of being threatened and judged. The lack of resources and support is a huge problem when it comes to abuse. That is when I knew I wanted to contribute.”

We are truly honored that Lily Ung has chosen to volunteer with us. She is definitely a certified rock star! Click here to find out how you, too, can become a rock star volunteer at APWC.
