Hmong Women History Makers Series: Dr. MayKao Hang

Imagine that you were able to raise your children to be strong and courageous, to chase after their dreams, and to pursue their passions.

Every good parent wants their children to succeed in life and to do what they love, but how do we teach our kids this when we ourselves are struggling to live into our own dreams?

How do we show our children what it looks like to succeed when we're still trying to figure it out ourselves?

If you're tired of settling for mediocrity and want more for yourself and your children, then our Hmong Women History Makers Series is for you.

The author, Tony Robbins writes, "The surest way to achieve success is to model someone who is already successful."

Hmong Women History Makers Series

The Hmong Women History Makers Series is a collection of interviews with inspiring Hmong women who are pioneers in their fields. They have gone against cultural norms and have accomplished what few other Hmong women have. They are examples of courage and resilience for us and our children.

In this series, these women share their stories and give tips on how they were able to overcome obstacles to reach their dreams. 

My hope is that their stories and insights might help you and your kids achieve your dreams and live a vibrant life :)


Today's guest is Dr. MayKao Y. Hang. Dr. Hang is the President and CEO of the Amherst H. Wilder Foundation, a non-profit organization that serves over 10,000 families and is a $48 million dollar operating organization. 

Dr. Hang has received many awards including the Girl Scouts Women of Distinction Award, the Humphrey Public Leadership Award, and was recently named a Most Admired CEO by the Twin Cities Business Journal in 2017.

In this video, learn how to:

  • Expand your horizons for who you can become
  • Build a good life by surrounding yourself with a "specific" kind of people
  • Become an authentic leader
  • Get your kids to cooperate without hitting them or using harsh words

Last but not least...

All of the Hmong women in the History Makers Series embody courage, resilience, and empowerment, all characteristics that I want to teach young kids, especially girls, through my newest book called, Kuv Ua Tau (I Can Do It). 

This book features a whimsical Hmong girl named Nkauj Lug (Gaolu) who reminds us that we are all more capable than we realize. This book will teach your kids how to have a "can do" attitude so that they have the courage to pursue their dreams :)

Preorders for this book will begin on March 27, 2018.
