International Women’s Celebration 2024

I was honored to receive the “Women of Distinction” Award from this year’s Women’s International Celebration 2024. They are a non-profit 501c3 with a mission to unite, celebrate, and honor the remarkable achievements of women worldwide and strive for continuous support by and for women.

Mai Le is the founder and chair of the organization. She is a beautiful woman inside and out who tackled challenging language and cultural hurdles to become a successful publisher and entrepreneur. Mai Le has become a trusted voice for the Phoenix Metro Vietnamese community. She co-founded and became CEO of the Asian Media Network.

I would like to thank my dear friend Shante Saulsberry for nominating me for this year’s award. Shante is a community advocate for domestic violence education and is a dynamic business woman in her own right. 

The event was hosted at the Saigon Center in Chandler, AZ on March 30th, 2024.

I was overwhelmed to receive this award with 11 other remarkable women nominated from the United States and different cultures and countries around the world. I always enjoy learning and making new friends.

There were a variety of musical performances and a colorful fashion show entitled “The Parade of Cultures” with traditional styles from Bangladesh, China, Korea, Thailand, Philippines, Haiti, Venezuela, and Mexico.

Also present was the Mayor of Chandler, my friend Kevin Hartke who gave the opening remarks, followed by keynote speaker Karrin Taylor Robson. She is an Arizona business leader and land use expert who founded AZ Strategies, a premiere land use firm in Phoenix. She spoke of how important it is for women to become self-sufficient Business owners. Her story was inspiring.
