She is the co-founder and president of the literary studio Plympton and a producer of ''The Search for General Tso'', which premiered at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival.
Lee is a vice-chair of the Unicode Emoji Subcommittee, which is responsible for making recommendations relating to emoji to the Unicode Technical Committee. Inspired by the universality of the dumpling across cultures and cuisines (e.g., jiaozi in China, ravioli in Italy, pierogi in Poland, empanadas in various Latin American countries), she helped to make the dumpling emoji a candidate. She also co-authored the proposal for a hijab emoji. Provided by Wikipedia
