The city of Cupertino Recognizes Extra Steps Taken (CREST) Award, honors outstanding community volunteers (Individuals or organizations) making major contributions to the quality of life in Cupertino during the year 2011.
Vicky has long years of community service both within and outside the Cupertino Chamber of Commerce, in particular her efforts to bring Asian-American businesses into the mainstream of Cupertino public life. While she served concurrently as Special Events Chair for the Chamber, overseeing celebrations of the special days of this multicultural community, particularly the Lunar New Year, Vicky's most notable achievement this year was her creative response to the current economic downturn. Realizing that many talented professionals has lost their employment in other people's companies, she joined Mandarin & Cantonese Business Seminar Committees to open their eyes to a new possibility - - working for themselves. She organized and personally conducted a seminar in Mandarin, "Should I Start a Business?"
