The Ideanomics family wouldn’t be the same without our Asian American Pacific Island community who have added so much richness to the future we are building together. For Asian Pacific American Heritage Month 2021, we asked our employees what their Asian and/or Pacific Islander culture heritage means to them.
“I grew up in China, studied and worked in Denmark, and am now living in the US. I learned that our world is a product of our past experiences, and the best way to expand our horizons is to see it from other people’s perspectives.”Holly ChenVP, People Operations
“We have a saying in Chinese: 'There isn’t a problem that can’t be solved in a Hot Pot.' When people feel down, they eat Hot Pot. Hot Pot brings happiness, and more importantly, it reflects the inclusivity of food and different cultures that come together.”Zoey YangAnalyst
“As an Asian American, I get to experience different cultures without leaving the comforts of my couch.”Kate LamManaging Director, Financial Products
“I am thankful that I have the opportunity to experience the beauty of different cultures and learn that we share more similarities than differences.”Cecilia XuCorporate Controller
“I am thankful for my heritage because it has taught me to have a sense of gratitude for all types of experiences, both good and bad.”David YangManager, Product Marketing
“I identify as 100% Chinese and 100% American. It doesn’t have to be a choice. It gives me more perspectives to reflect, create, and choose the path to grow as a marketing professional, and as a human being.”Angel XieVP, Marketing and Communications
