I am an immigration attorney at the Law Office of Kathryn N. Karam. I was born in Taiwan, moved to Hong Kong when I was 16, and came to the U.S. in 2012. As an immigrant, I understand the impact immigration status can have on individuals and their families. I love my job because it allows me to utilize the law to help people achieve their aspirations, keep families together, and enable employers to acquire talent from all over the world.
What attracted you to VOX?
Many social movements fail because they appeal primarily to emotions, and emotions come and go. People also avoid social issues because they are often perceived as extremist and trigger negative emotional responses such as guilt, anger, or discomfort. Vox Culture takes a more sustainable and pleasant approach by reaching people through their appreciation for beauty with the goal of fostering a humanistic culture.
