Years in OCA Las Vegas: 22
Go-to boba drink: Milk tea with boba
OCA Las Vegas co-founder Vida Lin has worked closely with the Las Vegas AAPI community for the past 26 years. She currently serves as the founder and president of the Asian Community Development Council (ACDC), the first and only non-profit community development corporation in Nevada established to assist and empower the fastest growing demographic in the United States. A 20+ year insurance broker who owned an insurance agency, Vida actively serves the community by being on various boards, including the Asian American Pacific Islanders County Commission, College of Southern Nevada Diversity Council, KTNV Diversity Panel, Esperanza Fund, and UNLV University Libraries. She is currently a board member of the AARP Nevada Executive Council, advocating awareness for the aging AAPI community. Vida hopes the next generation of AAPI will be more actively engaged with the community and informed on issues that impact the community. She hopes there will be more AAPIs who run for elected office.
