Bibi and her family are Vietnamese refugees. At the age of 6, she lived in the refugee camp for 4 years before being accepted into the USA. As a beneficiary of scholarships and systems that helped those seeking a better life, Bibi's mission in life is to pay it forward. In doing so, she created the same opportunity to help others have a second chance in life through The Olivia Mae Lotus Scholarship and One Stop Beauty School.
"I have been abundantly blessed with opportunities to learn and grow, I want to pay it forward and pass it on to future generations. There is a proverb that has stayed with me since I started on this journey to be an educator: “Give a man a fish, he can eat for the day. Teach a man to fish, he can eat for a lifetime.” My hope is to help and empower others to realize that they too, can pull themselves out of challenges and achieve success—through hard work, dedication and integrity."
