As the daughter of immigrants, Jenn spent her childhood in a strict routine. While her parents just wanted the best for her, Jenn knew she was destined to pave a new kind of way for her family. Going against the grain, Jenn left her corporate role as a product designer to launch a brand that would go on to make a difference to children around the world.
