Women's History Month 2022 Celebration and Scholarship

Updated: Apr 1


 

March 2022




Dear Multicultural Council of NY friends,




March is Women’s History Month. Multicultural

Council of NY will celebrate women on our 2nd Annual Celebrating Women’s event on March 28, 2022 at 6 p.m. At this event we will have key note speaker and winners of the essay contest will become presenters.

Our theme for 2022 is Remembrance, Reliving, and Rejuvenation.

My father, Elder Byung Han Lee, passed away peacefully on October 18, 2021. He was my mentor in Humanities. He wrote poems which turned into a song. He and I discussed human rights at length. He was a Christian and he was close to the word of God, the Bible.

He respected people’s belief in other religion, philosophy and ways of life. He used to say that Christians can embrace all!

Many people who knew him or of him generously donated and helped me to start the Byung Han Lee Humanity Scholarship on the Multicultural Council of NY.

Please follow the following and send email to sleesegredo@multiccny.org in order to be considered for the scholarship.

In celebration of Women's History Month, the Multicultural Council of NY would like to select three female students. You can visit www.multiccny.org to view last year’s event. You can also read our goal and vision.

Look forward to receiving your application.

Sincerely,

Soh Young Lee-Segredo

Multicultural Council of NY Founder/President
