Michelle Li

Co-Founder of The Very Asian Foundation; Veteran Journalist

REQUEST BOOKING INFORMATION

Michelle Li Biography

Michelle Li is an award-winning, veteran journalist who co-launched The Very Asian Foundation in January 2022 alongside friend and fellow journalist Gia Vang.

Her response to a racist voicemail became a global movement of unity and caught the attention of The Ellen Show. Ellen’s monetary gift of $15,000 helped start the seed money to create a nonprofit focused on shining a light on Asian life through advocacy and celebration. Not only has The Very Asian Foundation raised tens of thousands of dollars for AANHPI nonprofits in its first 100 days, it is also launching a national awareness campaign called "The May Book Project."

A Korean adoptee, Li spent many years supporting adoptees through heritage camps and volunteer tours to Korea. She also launched a program to support Missouri children in foster care. This work led to a congressional award in 2010. Li’s reporting has been honored with a national Peabody Award, four national Murrows, and multiple regional Emmys--often for covering topics related to race or gender inequities. Li has appeared on CNN, NBC, CBS, ABC, and The Washington Post. She is releasing a children’s book this fall with Gloo Books called "A Very Asian Guide to Korean Food."

Li currently resides in St. Louis with her family. She is @michellelitv on most platforms.
