The purpose of this blog is to empower Hmong American women through sharing our stories and ideas to help with personal and professional development, as well as, bridge the gap between being Hmong and American. A popular proverb states, “Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.” Where one of us succeeds, I hope we can teach another so that she may be empowered for a lifetime.
