Claire Chao

Isabel Sun Chao grew up in Shanghai, and is one of the last generation who experienced the legendary 'old Shanghai' firsthand. She has lived in Hong Kong since 1950, working for more than 30 years as a cultural affairs specialist in the US Consulate General. Now in her 90s, she can be found most days exercising her skills at the mahjong table. Isabel's daughter Claire spent much of her youth seeking connections to her parents' homeland. After 30 years in Asian luxury brand management, she spent a decade creating Remembering Shanghai, uncovering an uncanny link with the grandfather she never met. She has been named one of Avenue magazine's "500 Most Influential Asian Americans" and Hong Kong Tatler's "Who's Who in Hong Kong." She graduated with highest honors from Princeton University and lives in Honolulu with her husband and two dogs.
