A Dollar and A Dream.
By Laopost.net 02/12/2011
A dollar, a dream and the will to succeed - is that even possible? Most people heard of this before, maybe by a motivational speaker or from sarcastic friends trying to be humorous. But sometimes if you truly believe that current events that are happening in your life, either good or bad, does happen for a reason, and you are destined to become someone better then what you are now, maybe there is some truth to that. One Lao American proves that it is possible.
At the age of 14 years old, Nary Manivong found himself abandoned by his parents. With no where to go, he found himself sleeping outside a donut store in Columbus Ohio and for the first time in his life, he realized that he was homeless. This is a very inspiring store for all young Lao people about a individual who has everything stacked up against him, but have the courage and the hope to keep moving forward in his life. The movie “Dressed”, in selected theaters now, documents the struggles of his life to make it in a very competitive business of fashion design it New York City. Nary should inspire all of us who has hopes and dreams and to follow them regardless of how large the bumps that life puts in front of us.
