Vic Lee

Vic Lee is a born and raised New Yorker with the tenacious spirit needed to make an impact for the city she loves. In March 2020, Vic co-founded Welcome to Chinatown, a nonprofit with the mission of community preservation through empowering entrepreneurs. By creating an outlet for social good that bridges cultural and generational gaps, Welcome to Chinatown has championed change. Vic is also on the Board of Gotham Park and is the elected District Leader of 65D. Despite growing up in Brooklyn, Vic made weekly Sunday visits to Manhattan's Chinatown for dinners in her late grandmother's apartment. Those weekly visits became her formative years because she fell in love with Chinatown, a neighborhood that has shaped her into the strong, proud Asian-American woman she is today.
