My name is Hamy Huynh (pronounced Hammie Hwin). I’m a 20-year-old Public Relations major at the University of Minnesota Twin Cities. The creation of this blog stemmed from my mother, an immigrant from Vietnam working in America as a tailor. Growing up alongside my mom, I was constantly exposed to clothing and fashion magazines. Because of her, I developed a strong interest in both fashion and writing. Combining my passions together, I decided to start The Clothing Statement, a blog centered around clothes, traveling, and lifestyle insights.
