Esther Ho

She, her, hers

Hello! My name is Esther Ho, and I’m excited to be one of your AAHM Co-Chairs! I primarily grew up in Brooklyn but have also spent several summers in Hong Kong (I miss the food at home T-T). I’m a big fan of wandering around, going to live music events, trying new eats, playing tetris, and just vibing. I also like watching F1 (checo has my heart) and have an ever-growing Smiski collection. At Northeastern you’ll probably catch me in the annex or hemenway building in my free time – so feel free to say hi if you ever run into me!

Year: 2nd Year
Major: Computer Science and Business
Hometown: Brooklyn, NY

Tetris, nonograms, baking linzer cookies, listening to music, bothering AAC Staff 🙂

Favorite Thing to Do in Boston:

Walking and biking the Esplanade at night

Why I choose to work at the AAC: I want to be one of the welcoming faces when people come into the AAC spaces, as well as fostering a space where people feel comfortable and can participate in activities to meet other members in the community. (also I already spend so much time in the annex I figured I might as well work there too LOL)
What made you decide to be a Team 442 Member, and what are you the most excited for?

As a first and a half generation immigrant growing up in New York City, I’ve gotten to learn about the importance of community connections. In the past year, I have had the opportunity to plan collaborative events for Asian American Heritage Month as SASE PAAC rep, including facilitating a reflection workshop. Seeing first-hand the sense of community that these events fostered helped inspire me to want to take on a more active role in planning AAHM celebrations in the upcoming year. I’m excited to work with the APIDA orgs on campus to create more opportunities for individuals to come together, where everyone feels empowered to share their diverse experiences, engage in meaningful conversations, and forge lasting connections with one another.
