In celebration of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, CPC launched the “Our Community, Our Stories” campaign to share the personal stories of different community members directly impacted by CPC.
Our fifth community story features Jubi Qayum.
Jubi Qayum was born and raised in New York City. His parents were born in Bangladesh, and they immigrated to New York City in the early 90s. Jubi has two older brothers and one younger sister. Jubi was originally born in Harlem and eventually moved to the Lower East Side (LES). Since moving to the LES Jubi has always felt strongly connected to his neighborhood and was eager to be more involved in his community.
