Do you know who Awkwafina is? If you've seen "Crazy Rich Asians" or "Oceans 8" then you might recognize her. Her actual name is Nora Lum and she graduated from SUNY Albany.
Well, now we can add host of "Saturday Night Live" to her list of accomplishments as well. This Saturday night she'll be hosting "SNL" so if you're a fan of the show then when you watch you can say "Hey, that girl went to SUNY Albany"
Yes, you're right, it is pretty awesome to have some local ties on "Saturday Night Live"
Not exactly sure who she is? Here, let me help you out a bit.
