Sunny Hong has been a SAL volunteer since 2021, joining the Words Bloom Gala committee last fall and working alongside board members and other volunteers to host the 2022 SAL gala. Sunny previously served on the board of directors of the VERA Project, a nonprofit organization dedicated to youth-driven engagement in music and art.
As a board member she works to serve SAL by ensuring the organization fulfills its legal duties and prudently manages its assets, as well as supporting the staff to advance SAL’s mission, uphold its values, and act as an ambassador for SAL in our community.
Each new SAL event Sunny attends becomes her favorite event! She finds that the diversity of guests, ideas, and stories experienced at SAL have informed, inspired, and uplifted her throughout.
On Sunny’s desk you’ll find a ThinkPad for work, an ancient MacBook Pro, a pair of Bose noise-canceling headphones, but most importantly, one of her cats, usually Emma, and her ideal Sunday includes a savory brunch, hot black coffee, no scheduled commitments, and uninterrupted time to read.
