What is your favorite part of the Museum? 
My favorite part of the Museum is the object theater, My Chinatown: Stories from Within. The object theater really reflects the Chinatown that I grew up with, and I've even known some of the speakers since high school. I love the multi-media storytelling method with the videos and artifacts, and I think the stories are told beautifully.

What are you most excited about doing as part of the Associate Board? 
I'm excited about the innovative programming and community building we do. The Museum is such a great community space that preserves a lot of untold history and stories. I love the opportunity to activate this space with creative new takes that also speak to current events.

CAMOC is thrilled to have Consuela on our Associate Board!
