Hu
Peggy B. Hu defied Asian-American stereotypes in college by studying comparative literature and international relations rather than math and science. She holds a Bachelor of Arts with distinction from the University of Virginia.
Ms. Hu works in the Bureau of International Information Programs as a copy editor, occasional writer and unofficial interpreter between information technology staff and other people.
She is also the volunteer webmaster for the Washington chapter of the Asian American Journalists Association, a piano player and the mother of a primary school student who thinks he should have an equal say in family decisions.
Ms. Hu was born in Buffalo, New York, and has lived in the D.C. area since she was eight years old. Her family is originally from Taiwan.
