We believe that investing in youth is one approach to make the world a better place.

This is why the SMYH Foundation established Show Me Your Heart, a non-profit organization whose mission is to support the talents of our youth, the future leaders of the American immigrant community, to expand their opportunities to enter mainstream American society.

Heather Choi, Chairman of SMYH Foundation, has been awarded the 2017 Ellis Island Medal of Honor by the National Ethnic Coalition of Organizations (NECO).


She believes that investing in people is one approach to making this world a better place. This is why Heather founded 'Show Me Your Heart,' a non-profit organization whose mission is to extend chances for artists at home and abroad by creating opportunities, challenges, and encouragement for young artists involved in art and music.
