MISS ASIA SACRAMENTO QUEENS
QUEEN JUDY LEE
Miss Asia Sacramento 2012
Miss Judy Lee is the 2012 Miss Asia Sacramento. She is 22 years old, born and raised in San Francisco, California, and proudly represents her Chinese community. She is currently wrapping up her last quarter at the University of California, Davis, studying Statistics and Economics. Upon graduation in June 2012, she will be undergoing the process of applying to law school. Her passion is to one day become a lawyer, a Supreme Court Justice, and the President. She believes that knowing the law is very powerful, and through becoming a lawyer one day, she wants to help those who lack knowing the law and to fight for justice. Her platform is on raising the awareness of breast cancer. The founder of the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation inspired her to stay strong and to never give up. Through the Miss Asia Sacramento Scholarship Foundation, she plans to reach out to young women in the greater Sacramento area to learn more about breast cancer.
She is fluent in Cantonese, Mandarin, and Spanish. Cantonese was one of her primary languages while growing up. She learned how to read and write Mandarin Chinese in Chinese School for 12 years and is greatly appreciative of her mother who motivated her to continue and to finish strong. In Chinese School, she also practiced writing calligraphy—an art that trained her to be more patient in life. She learned Spanish all throughout high school for four years, and today, she still practices the language with her family and friends. On her spare time, she enjoys singing, dancing, and cooking. Artists like Celine Dion, Whitney Houston, and Teresa Teng inspired her to use her voice to speak her mind; music opens her heart to stay positive, humble, and motivated throughout her life. She enjoys cooking and baking because the process of cooking excites her, though it takes a lot of work effort and time, it has taught her to use her time wisely and to stay organized. Not only is she thrilled and honored to be on board as Queen of Miss Asia Sacramento, but she is ready to take this exciting journey in empowering young women in Sacramento.
