Join us at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights to explore this month’s CreativeMornings theme of ENDURANCE.
Liz Choi is no stranger to adversity. From the day she was born, she carried the heavy burden of her parents’ disappointment – all because they wanted a son.
As a young teen, Liz was uprooted from South Korea and sent to live on her own in Canada – forced to learn a new language and culture without any social safety nets to fall back on. As someone inextricably linked to her newcomer identity, she stood strong against relentless discrimination, microaggressions, misogyny and imposter syndrome that often overshadowed her path in Canada.
Yet, against all odds, Liz endured and secured her place as a successful executive leader who is now focused on breaking ground instead of ceilings. Today, she is on a mission to help others along their personal journeys to become first-generation wealth creators.
Join us for an intimate conversation with Liz, where she will share her extraordinary voyage of emotional endurance and mental resilience as a racialized woman in business. Learn from her remarkable journey of establishing a legacy from ground zero while drawing inspiration to craft your own unforgettable story of success.
We will also be graced by a music performance from Daiisu. She is a 20-year-old Filipino singer-songwriter out of Winnipeg, Manitoba. Getting her start on Twitch, she has grown a small following playing to thousands of people through the platform. Being surrounded by a wide variety of genres and sounds she pulls from many influences such as Mac Ayres, Sam Kim, and Lizzy McAlpine. To create her unique blend of R&B, Indie, and Jazz, Daiisu’s songwriting tells stories close to the heart, creating a warm and intimate vibe around her work.
