As an Asian immigrant, Han is committed to promote opportunities for Asian Pacific Americans within the legal profession, as well as to serve the Asian Pacific American community in the Chicago‑area at large. Han was born and raised in China. When she was 14 years old, she immigrated to the US to start a new life with her Chinese mother and American stepfather. With a lot of hard work, she learned English, adjusted to her new home in Oak Park, Illinois, went to college at Brown University, and eventually went to law school at University of Illinois College of Law. As Han got older, especially after law school, she became increasingly aware of her Asian American identity, and she wanted to give back to the Asian Pacific American community by advocating for diversity and inclusiveness. Han joined the Asian American Law Students Association (“AALSA”) for that reason.
During her time at law school, she served as the 1L Representative, President, and now Advisor and Mentor of AALSA organizing many events aimed at serving Asian Pacific Americans with one goal in mind — to promote diversity and inclusiveness for Asian Pacific Americans both within the legal profession as well as in the community at large.
After she graduates from law school, she plans to continue to serve the needs of the Chicago‑area Asian Pacific American community to better advocate for more opportunities for Asian Pacific Americans in the legal profession, as well as more pro bono legal service for under-represented Asian Pacific American communities in the city.
