dc.description.abstract Faye Chin was born in Amarillo, Texas in 1936, to Chinese-American immigrants, and has lived most of her life in Houston. She studied at the University of Houston before moving to San Francisco, California for 20 years, and it was there that she began a long career in the hotel business. She has worked for many hotels in both San Francisco and Houston, and enjoys the service industry. She does a large amount of volunteer work for a handful of Asian, Asian American, and Chinese organizations in Houston, and is currently employed at the Asia Society. She enjoys cooking and ballroom dancing, and feels very connected to her Chinese heritage despite having never lived in China. She is married and has one son, who lives in New York.
