Women's Day

Join Sisterhood for a special Women’s Day event as we welcome two dynamic women from the diverse Houston community who will share their personal stories from immigration adversities to subsequent triumphs.

Y. Ping Sun is widely recognized in Houston and around the globe for her generous spirit and a strong commitment to community engagement. Raised in Shanghai during the Cultural Revolution in China, she persevered in school while teachers, scholars and intellectuals were denounced. She graduated from Beijing Language and Culture University and later attended Princeton University on a full scholarship, where she graduated cum laude. Sun then earned a law degree from Columbia University. She came to Houston in 2004 when her husband, David Leebron, became president of Rice University. She currently serves as a University Representative and is of counsel with the law firm of Yetter Coleman, LLP.

Dr. Joanna Molina Razavi is a cardiac electrophysiologist at the Texas Heart Institute and Baylor College of Medicine. A native of Tijuana, Mexico, she attended medical school at Universidad Autonoma de Baja California after obtaining the highest score statewide in the medical school entry examination. Dr. Razavi then completed a residency at Baylor College of Medicine and became the first female international graduate of the Texas Heart Institute Fellowship program and the first Hispanic woman to pursue the additional electrophysiology subspecialty training program of cardiology – a highly competitive path few women choose. She has garnered an international reputation as one of the best teachers in her field.

Please don’t miss this unique opportunity to learn more about these two inspiring women!
