Meeting The Team
Cindy M. Ngo is a Guatemalan-Vietnamese American from the Olney section of Philadelphia. Cindy’s passion steams from her first-generation immigrant parents when their family business closed due to unfortunate circumstances. She did not want that for other small family and immigrant owned businesses and wanted to do more for her community. Cindy graduated from Temple University with a BA in Communications. She founded Eat Up The Borders during her internship at Welcoming Center for New Pennsylvanians with Asmah. Her dream is to open a community center that would be home for everyone, especially immigrants.

Jenna Lam is a Khmer-Vietnamese American from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
