This month we celebrated AANHPI Heritage Month. 

As an Asian-owned brand, it's important to us to highlight and uplift the AANHPI community. 

Our founder, Lauren, is committed to supporting the voices, stories, and brands in the AANHPI community. So, this month, Lauren interviewed 4 Asian-owned brands and leaders in the community. 

We hope you will join us in celebrating and supporting AANHPI brands and voices, not just in May, but year-round. 

Interview Highlights: 

“Starting a brand is like giving yourself a voice. This is your platform so use it in a way that best reflects you.”
