Radio Personality Angela Yee Receives Day in New York + Named Public Library Ambassador
Angela Yee has just been in honored by the City of New York in two special ways. Mayor Bill de Blasio has appointed August 28th officially Angela Yee Day in New York.
The radio personality has also been appointed a New York Public Library Ambassador (NYPL). Under Yee’s new title, she will be participating with the NYPL in a major way. She is designated to host book clubs at different libraries across the city, participate with NYPL events, campaigns, and programs. The president of NYPL, Tony Marx, stated about her new role,
“Angela Yee is a remarkable person whose success as a radio personality, entrepreneur, and writer is equaled by her insatiable desire to give back to her city and its people. Despite all that’s on her plate, Angela has always found the time and energy to support and advocate for wonderful causes near to her heart, and we are so grateful to be one of them.”
Yee conferred about receiving the honor,
“Some of my best memories growing up in New York are the times I spent in the public library where I developed my love for reading. I decided in first grade that I would go to college and be an English major, which I did. There are so many programs and so much to love about your local branch, and I’m excited to become a New York Public Library Ambassador to explore that with you.”
While Yee explores the library, she also given an accolade from the Mayor of New York, Bill de Blasio. On Tuesday, a ceremony was held at the Gracie mansion, where Yee received her prestigious honor and gave a brief speech. In a short clip shared to her Instagram Story, she began to describe what it feels like to receive her own day.
“This is such an honor for me, as somebody who grew up in Brooklyn.”
