to all my women, marmies*, ladies, & girls
in light of this holiday, I'd like to share a bit about who are
my special international ladies in my life and who I am
This day is ours, and it should very well be ours. Every day. Happy International Women's day! To me, this is a great moment to share a little more about myself and who exactly is behind A Little Bundle.
This particular day is special to me as it represents the most honorable ladies in my life. My most loving Grandma and my single most amazing Marmie* are my favorite International ladies in the world. Many of the ladies in my family, friends and now, the amazing women I am lucky to work with through A Little Bundle, have shown me the ability to believe, share and work hard for your dreams and that dreams really do come true.
With Taiwanese as my first language, and English and Mandarin following, my world has always been a mixture Asian and American cultures. Born in Texas, I've grown (and still am) in cities from Northern to Southern California, to New York City, Honolulu, and back to Texas. My ability to adapt to change has become a form of habit, traveling has become mandatory for survival and I am constantly wanting to learn and see more every day. Graduated from Parsons as an illustrator and graphic designer has increased my skill-set, but I melted into Fashion for seven solid years with the opportunity to run my own line with my favorite and only Sister and worked with small and big designers assisting in their Runway collections. My combined and incredibly fortunate professional experiences have allowed me to be who I am today and want to be better and more.
I admire the women in my life that represents bravery, strength in good and bad days and exuding class and modest confidence without over justifying themselves. I am so lucky to have them as my support and confirmation that my dreams are valid. Thank you.
Here's to a moment to reflect, whether on the Internet, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook or right before you close your eyes tonight: Be thankful of all the incredible women in your life, in our society, in the world that have believed, worked hard and validated that
we are capable, driven and empowered. And that anything is possible.
Lots of Love and Big Hugs,
#whorunstheworld #ladies #girls #women
*Side note: my sister, Karen, and I coined the word naming our mom, Marmie.
