The Lishan Spirit
Mr. Wea H. Lee
I am here representing the International District and our many friends from the international community to pay our deepest respects to Leeshan Birney. Leeshan has not only been our model, she has been our leader and a true pioneer.
Over the last 20 years, Leeshan has been a tireless worker for our community, and as a founding member of the International District and because of her enthusiastic contributions, we have met on a monthly basis to overcome many difficulties in the effort to make our international community a better place to live.
Many of us as new immigrants have come from different corners of the world to seek our liberty and also business opportunities.
Leeshan Birney’s success story has really opened a new chapter of immigration history and millions of newcomers really appreciate
Leeshan’s example that has paved the way for the rest of us
Leeshan, I am so proud to have been one of your close friends and colleagues. All of us will continue to fight on to achieve your goal making this great land an even better place to live.
