2015 First Princess, Erika Liu

 

Erika Liu was born in El Salvador, Central America and immigrated to California with her family when she was five years old. Her Chinese heritage originates from Guangzhou, China. Though her Cantonese was her first language, by the age of six, Erika also became fluent in Spanish and English and has since been heavily influenced by all three cultures.

As the eldest of four siblings, Erika fell in love with children at a young age and has always aspired to become a teacher. She graduated from California State of Fullerton in 2012 with a Bachelor's in Child Development and continued on to earn her Multiple Subject Credentials the following year.

Growing up, Erika dreamed of becoming Miss Los Angeles Chinatown Queen. She hopes to use her diverse background and degree in education to help spread awareness to others about Chinese culture and would be honored to represent the Chinese Chamber of Commerce. Erika would love to give a big thank you to the Chinese Chamber of Commerce, her sponsor, Customized Tour Specialist, as well as her family and friends. Happy Chinese New Years!
