Pa Kou Lee

Program Coordinator

Pa Kou started her career as an educator and found passion in teaching and mentoring students. After spending a few years living and teaching overseas, Pa Kou returned to the Twin Cities, where she grew up. She decided to pursue a career in the non-profit sector, specifically working with underrepresented youth and helping them pursue a pathway to college.

Pa Kou was a first-generation college student who understands the importance of a support group and organization like UpTurnships.

Outside of work, Pa Kou enjoys spending time with her family and enjoys watching crime shows (whenever she can find time).
