Wendy Nguyen is one of the first fashion bloggers in the industry.  She influences over 600,000 YouTube subscribers and one million Instagram followers by fusing art, nature, culture, architecture, food, people, and music into artful expressions of fashion.      

Besides fashion, Ms. Nguyen's other passion is juvenile justice.  Having spent a part of her youth in the foster care system, she has devoted most of her adult life to working with kids who have also been down the same path.  According to Ms. Nguyen, the U.S. foster care system is broken and many of these youth end up homeless, incarcerated, or both.   Mainly though, she's interested in their story.  She believes that if we can dissect and reach the root of the trauma, then we can build a support system to help them succeed.
