This is truly humbling. Couldn't be more proud of my family's background, survival and Armenian-American journey. Thank you #GoverningMagazine for the interview. Featuring Ooh La La! Boutique and highlighting the overwhelming support from the community for refugees relocating to Twin Falls. We came to this country with absolutely nothing, except for hope, work ethic and the desire to live free from persecution. My parents taught me, when there is no door of opportunity, build your own! It began as a dream - www.oohlala-shop.com - and this year is Ooh La La's 10th Birthday! Our refugee journey is testament to the epic American promise - our survival is our success story. Each breath is extra, each day is extra. Twin Falls deserves to be represented by its true nature as the welcoming, adoptive community it is. "A refugee center in Twin Falls has endured many months of anti-immigrant hostility -- and emerged stronger as a result."

My stylist Omar Huerta Villa and I have been talking about prom, how our families struggled to afford prom and other school activities, when we were in High School. "Every girl deserves to go to prom!" As first generation, immigrant entrepreneurs, we cherish the opportunity to build our dream career in this country. This blessing comes with a responsibility to empower the next generation. The cost of Prom today is too expensive, it becomes an impossible experience for many teenage girls. Omar and I are committed to making sure ALL our Twin Falls girls go to prom in style, and make lasting life memories! This next week ALL formals at Ooh La La! are "Pay What You Can*" No questions asked, no shaming. If your family is struggling, pay what you honestly can. Then, Saturday, April 22 - Omar Huerta Villa is setting aside his whole day to style your hair and makeup for prom. This is not charity, we simply want to keep this special High School experience affordable for all our young ladies. To schedule with your hair and make up call Omar at (208) 293-6374. We want to bless forward through the opportunity we have as business owners in this community. If any other business wants to participate, feel welcome to share your Prom offer in the comments. HAPPY PROM 2017 to all our graduating students! <3 #prom2017 #dresses #PayWhatYouCan #makeup #hair #affordable#memories #local #smallbusiness #immigrant #firstgeneration#entrepreneurs #giveback #community #education #blessforward #Oohlala#Glamour #OmarHuerta #thisisTwinFalls #nextgeneration #classof2017#CanyonRidgeHS #MVHS #TwinFallsHS
