Celina Lee is a lawyer, author, and talk show host from New York. She has recently published a book in Korea, “꿈을 이뤄드립니다” (“Live Your Dream”). In her book, Celina tells the life stories of nine Korean-Americans who have lived their dreams and their stories of overcoming failure to achieve success in diverse industries, and their unique journey to the top of each profession.
Celina was born in California and moved to Korea when she was three years old and came back to California after finishing elementary school in Korea. In her career and while hosting the talk show, she has met many successful people and was inspired by those who used their skills and talent to help others and make the society a better place. She then thought for a long time, “How can I use my skills to help people and contribute to the society?”
Using her bilingual and bicultural background, she decided to publish a book in Korea to tell the stories of successful Korean-Americans to inspire the young generation and encourage them to pursue their dreams.
Celina started her career as an investment banker at Merrill Lynch and worked as a corporate lawyer at a law firm, Ropes & Gray LLP in New York. She is the President of Cheongwon America, Inc. and spearheads the effort for global investment for a premier real estate developer from Korea.
