Gibson X International Women’s Day Collection – Pieces of Emerald
What this collaboration for International Women’s Day 2021 means to me:
My parents migrated from Laos to give their children a better life here in the States. Shortly after creating and building a life, my dad passed. I grew up with 5 sisters and a single mom, and we barely made ends meet. My mom worked endlessly at a doughnut shop 7 days a week in order to put food on the table for our family. Seeing my mom work so hard to make sure that we had everything that we NEEDED, was/is so admirable. To my sisters stepping up and becoming the “mom” of the house and taking care of one another; I knew that I wanted to have the same selflessness, strength, and love as these women. Over the years, my family has grown exponentially in size and diverseness. My mom met my step dad, and together they have 18 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren. In this big family, we share the same bloodline, but our skin colors and physical features are all different. Being different is truly what makes us one of a kind, and leaves no room for limitations or restrictions. I am so proud of my big family and all that we have overcome.
