2016 CKW LUXE STAR AWARDS
Leona Chen: Devoted Volunteer Who Is Always up for a Challenge
CKW Luxe is proud to announce that Leona Chen is our honoree for the Aurora Award. This award goes to a youth who has inspired greatness in others. The winner will embody the characteristics of selflessness: giving, compassion and understanding.
Leona Chen is a young woman who is devoted to her community and to organizations that make a difference in a meaningful way. Seeing a need in her community, Leona, along with eight friends, founded the Asian American Youth Giving Circle. Its mission is to serve the Houston Asian American youth community through grants and volunteer opportunities. Numerous worthy organizations have benefitted from these charitable young people. As well as doing good work with her own group, Leona volunteers her time and talents to numerous worthy community nonprofits. When she isn’t serving her community, Leona is serving her school. As a straight-A student at the Kinkaid School, Leona is involved with clubs devoted to service, introducing her school to prospective students and their families, and participating in arts activities. CKW Luxe would like to thank Leona Chen for her kindness to others and for always giving of herself to benefit those in need, and to congratulate her on being our Aurora Award honoree.
