THANK YOU.

The month of JULY was an extremely busy month and for me to sit down, write to you, and talk about what happen on feels AMAZING!

First off, THANK YOU VERY MUCH for those who came to support my sister, Pagnia and my booth at the Hmong Sports Tournament in St. Paul, MN! It was my first time selling any of my designs and it was totally worth it. It felt wonderful to physically meet and greet with people from all over the world!!!

"While I was walking, an elder Hmong male stopped me, pointed to my t-shirt and, wanted to know where I got it. I pointed him to my booth. Haha!"

With my t-shirts hanging outside the booth, I received so many kind compliments and they all warmed my heart! Numerous Hmong elders came and touch my designs and it was surreal. While I was walking, an elder Hmong male stopped me, pointed at my t-shirt and, wanted to know where I got it. I pointed him to my booth. Haha!

It was very special weekend. 

I did not expect Hmong elders to love my designs and for that, I am happy to know that I created an item that everyone and anyone desired, respected, and connected with.  It felt so good to see people have a connection with the t-shirts.

So, THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

After a year's worth of making the t-shirt possible, I decided to take a trip out to the Southwest and FREE MY MIND AND SOUL. There, I discovered: Las Vegas, Zion National Park, Antelope Canyon, and Horseshoe Bend in Arizona and Utah. It was a road trip of a lifetime with my best friends from childhood and teenage years. This trip ended my July weekend perfectly. <3
