Ling Chai Maginn fled China after helping lead the Tiananmen Square protests at just 23 years old. Forced to start anew in the United States, she earned a degree from Princeton University, obtained an MBA from Harvard and soon launched two successful organizations.
Through Jenzabar, an educational technology company, Ling has helped countless schools save money and improve their connections to their students. Through All Girls Allowed, a not-for-profit, she has empowered women and girls around the world with literacy classes, gender equality programs and resources to help them live fulfilling lives.
You can meet Ling and three other honorees on March 8 at the Royal Sonesta Boston when The Immigrant Learning Center will recognize them at our annual Barry M. Portnoy Immigrant Entrepreneur Awards Benefit. Register to join us today!
These immigrant entrepreneurs are an inspiration to me and to our students at The Immigrant Learning Center. I see the same drive and determination reflected in their eyes. When I hand Ling that award, it won’t just be from me but from supporters like you and our students also. I hope you join us. When you buy a ticket or make a donation, you fuel our mission of giving all immigrants a voice. Thank you for being a supporter of The ILC’s work.
