Clara Chung x David Choi to Participate In White House Panel on Education

Clara Chung has been involved at official White House events in the past, and it looks like she did a great job. She along with her fellow SoCal artist David Choi have been invited back to speak on behalf of the White House Initiative on Asian Americans & Pacific Islanders to encourage today’s youth to pursue careers in education. The event is set to take place at Granada Hills Charter School in California and will be webcast live via UStream. This is a huge honor for both artists and we are proud to see them in these positions of influence. Check below for the press release.
