Carmel, GIVEN ’19

What is your biggest takeaway or insight from the GIVEN Forum?

God has given us the gift of unique and innate femininity. There is nothing wrong with being a woman, and there is more than one way to live out our innate maternal instinct.

Action Plan:

With my sister, I’d like to open a shop showcasing products handmade by women in my mom’s village, and other items that celebrate who we are: Filipino-American, Catholic and Texan. As business owners, we’d like to ensure we provide workers a safe environment, a respectful/dignified working experience, and a fair wage that enables them and their families to not just survive, but thrive.
