Geoteaming Sponsors NW Asian Weekly’s 35th Anniversary Gala

Last year Northwest Asian Weekly editor Assunta Ng asked me to be on their 35th Anniversary committee. Of course I said yes.

In the first meeting the “Fashion Chair” had to step down and they asked who would take it? I said I would! I envisioned I would have 4 other judges who would do Facebook Live interviews like the Academy Awards and then choose a winner to join us on stage.

During my term I talked to Luly Yang, Mona Locke and countless others to be fashion judges. By many fates, I ended up with the incredible team of Helen TsaoMiyoung Seul Margolis (she made her dress!), Hong Chhuor, and Miss Washington 2017 Alex Carlson-Helo, referred by Fei Chua and EDI Alum Maureen Francisco.

This team shot 29 videos with over 6,293 views and put on a fun and entertaining show with 5 winners. Most of all, we helped Assunta raise over $170,000 for 2 UW Scholarships.

Go to and go to Oct 21st to see the Facebook Live interviews.  See this top viewed view with Miss Washington 2017 Alex Carlson-Helo and learn about her incredible story and support for diversity in Seattle.
