Eric Fong

Summer Intern 2018

Hello, my name is Eric Fong. This is my first year working with the Asian American Economic Development Enterprises as well as my first year living in Los Angeles. I am from Sacramento, where I graduated with a BA in Sociology. At a moment in our society when self-interest seems to be at all-time-high levels, I greatly admire what the AAEDE does for the Monterey Park community. By supporting employment and encouraging the youth education, I know that we are doing meaningful work. I look forward to doing my best while continuing to learn and grow along with my community.

My name is Ernest Tse, I am from Alhambra, California. I am going to be a first year at Cal Poly Pomona and I will be majoring in Civil Engineering. This is my first year interning for AAEDE and from this internship I have learned a lot about communication skills and assisting our community. The internship has taught me a lot about the real world and how communication within a team of people is really important. It ranges from calling companies to helping out kids at the library. I am for sure looking forward to learning more skills as well as honing the ones I have already learned during my time here.

Nick Yeh

Summer Intern 2018

My name is Nicholas Yeh and I am from Alhambra, California. I am currently attending Cal State Poly Pomona as a second year. I am currently majoring in computer science major. This is my second year at AAEDE and their goal of helping the San Gabriel Valley community is truly inspiring. Being a part of this amazing organization has not only given me insight on my own community but allowed me to improve my own community. My favorite part about interning for AAEDE would have to be collaborating with skilled individuals to create something that could possibly impact and/or change someone’s life.

Weida Ye

Summer Intern 2018

Hi! My name is Weida Ye (Tom), and I am from Alhambra, California. I will be studying at East Los Angeles College for next year as a freshman. Working with Asian American Economic Development Enterprises, I am glad that I have the chance to practice and learn more about communication and teamwork by dealing with small projects or planning large events. It also taught me about the importance of participating in the community. Through my time at AAEDE the skills that I am currently putting into use will help me in the future. I am grateful to AAEDE for giving me this opportunity to learn and give back to the community.
