Sylvia Tian wants to be a "bridge" for new Asian immigrants in Pleasanton. To build a platform for them to become active community members and have their voices heard. And she and 10 companions hope to turn that goal into a reality through the newly founded Tri-Valley Asian Association. "We help the community a lot," she said of the city's Asian residents. "But also at the same time, we want to voice out, say what is not right, we need to change, we need to improve."
