Founder Friday: How My Mom's Naming Story Inspired My Brand Name
Our founder had to learn to embrace and love the name her mother gave her. Growing up in America as an immigrant has its tough moments, especially when your name becomes the punchline of jokes. It can make you question and even dislike your own name. But once you uncover the truth and embrace the struggle, there's a journey of learning to love it. This Founder Friday series, Chau open up about her own experience and the inspiration behind her namesake brand. Including her attempt to Americanize it.
“Like most Asian kids in America, we come to change our names because it's just easier...”
Her love for 'Who's the Boss' aided in that, but it led to understanding the story behind her given name. This series is not merely a recounting of events; it's an invitation to reflect on the power embedded in our names, the stories they tell, and the connections they forge with our roots. Chau's journey is a celebration of individuality, heritage, and the ongoing process of self-discovery.
