Born in a refugee camp in Thailand, Naw has never seen her ancestral home in Burma. Her parents were forced to flee their village, forever leaving behind the life they knew and loved.
In her early twenties, Naw became eligible to relocate to the United States to start a new life with her husband and baby boy. After a brief start in Kentucky, they moved to Massachusetts to be closer to their community.
Naw joined Prosperity Candle in 2012 as an apprentice. Today she is an accomplished candle artisan and mother of two.
