Exclusive interview with Pocket Sun, Founder of SoGal

24 years old. Pretty. Smart. Ambitious. Empowering.  As much as I’d like to say that I’m describing myself, I’m describing Pocket (Yiqing) Sun, founder of SoGal. I’ve met a few CEO’s in Los Angeles (there seem to be plenty who are younger than age 30) but what stands out about Pocket is that she was born and raised in China. Let me reword that for you:…

Asia Represent at Asia Society
