Anna's story

I grew up as a Korean immigrant in the suburbs of NJ. My mom owned a flower shop and later a nail salon. It wasn’t easy to raise a family in a country with unfamiliar customs and language, but she persisted. She is my biggest inspiration and because of her I learned the importance of hard work, determination, kindness and compassion. After my mom's passing in 2016, I am more motivated than ever to bring our shared values of love and kindness to the heart of KHORA's mission—comfort, conversation, and friendship. I think she would be proud of what we have created so far in the first years KHORA's life and we hope to continue with this mission far into the future.
