Today on The Pursuit: Jenny Yang.

Jenny is the Senior Vice President of Advocacy & Policy for World Relief, based in Baltimore, MD. Jenny applied for a job that she didn’t really want in a city that she didn’t want to live in… and it turned into a calling and career. We cover topics like racism, representation and tokenism through a retelling of her journey to pursue God.
