Hello! My name is Elizabeth and this is my first time blogging. I hope to capture some memorable moments as well as share my budding love of photography and reading through this blog. I am a 39 year old mother of four (21, 19, 14, 10) and currently work as a medical social worker at a major hospital. I hope to update this page at least on a weekly basis, but that can only happen if interesting things are happening to me.

  1. Hello Ms. Elizabeth. My name is YAAJ HU YIM. I am a Miao youth in the western Hemisphere which we would called the United States of America. A few of your blogs really highlighted my interested. I believe you are the perfect example of today’s modernized and western-Hmong woman. Even so, you still have some true traditional taste and roots but, lack in some – which is understandable knowing that the youth and the generation that grew up in this country would not have access to their authentic, deepest roots, culture, and heritage.

    I just want to appreciate you for putting your blog on the web. I certainly am fan of your banner you made about courage to your “roots.” I would love to invite you to an Exclusive and Private Educational Group on facebook if you want to learn more about your heritage. I believe it is certainly the women’s job to preserve the beautiful arts, folklores, and tradition of our beauty and pass them on to our daughters of the future – that too is a “dying” tradition in the Westernized Hemisphere that has lacked its authenticity. Hopefully soon, the maternal trend will trace back to its old footsteps. Everything in life is a connected and a ripple. Much a due. Ua Tsaug.


    • Thank you for your thoughts. I used to want nothing to do much with my culture, but as I matured, I began to realize the beauty of the language, traditions, and clothing of the a Hmong people.

      What is the name of your Facebook educational page?

  2. Thank you for your reply. Here is the link. There use to be hundreds of request but we only have serious youth and instructors who are open minded about such topic(s.) It’s quite vibrant and vast. I believe many of the information will overwhelm and make you much more proud of your amazing culture and heritage. “Falling leaves fall back to their roots,” says an old Chinese proverb. Thank you, friend. 🙂
