I am a Fine Arts, Beauty & Fashion Editorial Photographer based in the Twin Cities, Minnesota. I graduated from Century College with an Associates in Applied Science with a focus in Professional Photography.
You don’t realize the impact of representation until you see it happening. I grew up with the Asian Beauty stereotypes falling within the Chinese, Japanese and Koreans, which made me feel as though I could never be as beautiful or majestic enough as a Hmong American woman. I hit a point where I didn’t want my nieces to go through what I went through and started crafting my work with the goals of publishing Hmong American beauties: opening the world of opportunities for my nieces & their friends.
