Lily Yan Hughes was 11 years old when her family immigrated from Kowloon City, Hong Kong to the United States in 1974 to begin a new life in the Lincoln Heights area of Los Angeles. “English is not my first language,” Hughes told an audience in September when when she was the keynote speaker at the 44th annual dinner of the California Women Lawyers. “I did not know that hot water came out of a tap until I arrived in East Los Angeles.”
