When Victoria Li first left New York City to attend Dartmouth, she felt a little lost. She missed her close-knit Asian-American family and their bustling restaurant.
Inspired by her family’s love of food, she found comfort in serving falafel sandwiches from a campus food truck, founding a club that hosted food tastings on campus, and even washing dishes in the dining hall. Following graduation, Li landed in hospitality, but then took a different path to become Learning & Development Manager at L.E.K. Consulting. She co-chairs Mosaic@LEK, an employer resource group for individuals who identify as racial and ethnic minorities.
She started a podcast recounting her experiences attending Bronx Science, a well-known school in New York City, and she’s a contestant in Miss Chinese Chicago. Li traces fascinating twists and turns in her rising career.
