附：APAPA Youth Group student Max Zhuang’s article
On Saturday December 21, 2014, CC Yin invited many members of APAPA and myself to his home for lunch to celebrate the APAPA Tri-Valley Chapter; this year garnering 25 life time members into the organization. A polite and kind man, he immediately introduced myself to one of his daughters, Dartmouth alumni, when I mentioned that I would be attending the school in the fall. She not only talked to me about her experiences at the school but also about CC Yin, introducing me to his home. There, we witnessed his true legacy, told through the achievements, plaques, and photos in his home; Mr. Yin was an immigrant who came to the Americas in search of better opportunity as an engineer. He spoke about the many hardships he faced as a first generation immigrant with his wife, Regina. Eventually, through years of hard work in America, he formed a McDonalds empire owning 31 chains on the west coast. However, as someone who came to America as an immigrant, CC Yin shows strong appreciation for American politics and Democracy. And thus, he founded the nonpartisan organization APAPA motivated to drive voter participation in Asian American citizens like himself.
