“L.A. is wonderfully multicultural. I hope the younger generation will work together to connect its diverse communities.”
— Sue Bunzel
I come from a long line of incredible women. My grandmother worked alongside Margaret Sanger, and my mother was one of the few female physicians in the 1920’s. She would treat everybody equally; it didn’t matter who they were. It was through her example that I learned the importance of caring for your community. After she passed, I decided to use some of the money she left to support education in underserved communities. This is my legacy, but it’s as much my mother’s as it is mine.
