How I See SF:Miss San Francisco Catherine Liang
See San Francisco through the eyes of the enterprising Catherine Liang, the current Miss San Francisco.
If you want to have a truly genuine San Francisco experience, then you have to consult the experts: our friendly locals. Knowledgable, passionate, and always ready with a recommendation for what to do, see, or eat, San Franciscans of all types have been part of our ongoing "How I See San Francisco" series.
Catherine Liang is a Bay Area native, a young woman in finance, and the reigning Miss San Francisco. After growing up in Sonoma County and graduating from the University of Southern California, Catherine rooted herself in San Francisco.
Catherine’s social impact initiative is "To Be a Champion of Courage." She started this project after recent health challenges and used her downtime during the pandemic to create an online network of supporters. She hopes that by serving and showcasing people and businesses across San Francisco, she can inspire others to live fearlessly and courageously in pursuing their ambitions and dreams.
We asked Catherine about some of her favorite things in San Francisco, what she thinks every visitor should experience, and what's still on her bucket list.
Which neighborhood, other than your own, do you like to explore?
One of my favorite places to explore is Telegraph Hill. Whether it’s grabbing delicious hearty Italian food along Columbus Avenue and sitting in Washington Square Park or running up to Coit Tower to catch the sunset and watch the city lights illuminate, it definitely captures the lively spirit of SF.
