Tiphaine Tsang

Tiphaine Tsang is an inspirational example of how the American dream can be attained for those who immigrate to this country. Born in Hong Kong, she received her education, graduated, married and immigrated to New York City.

Like many immigrant women with limited English language skills and a limited support system, Ms. Tsang dedicated her early years in the United States to raising two children while working to strengthen her communication skills. As she began to achieve proficiency, she started to work with her husband’s business, ultimately serving as the office manager and head accountant of an import and export trading company.
