My story started with a dream to come to America- the land of opportunity. In 1988, that dream of mine became a reality. With my goals in sight, I worked hard through the challenges, and was able to achieve my dream of becoming a nurse. Just like many dreamers, millions have traveled all around the world in search of better opportunities and improved lives, not only for themselves but for their families. Thousands of miles away from their loved ones, just to sustain and survive, conquering different ways of life to establish a new beginning. No matter how difficult the journey was, they achieved their goals with hard work and perseverance.
P’NAI originated from the word “pinay” which is a colloquial term for Filipina- a woman from the Philippines, especially one with Filipino heritage living abroad just like myself. P’NAI was created to honor and pay tribute to the hundreds of thousands of immigrants who left their home countries looking to have a better life and brighter future. This is for all of you who continually answer the calling to serve others no matter where you go, to staying true to your heritage, strong spirit, and never losing sight of your passion to care for others. Like many others, P’NAI believes that “dreams do come true” and we salute you for your courage and resilience.
As a promise, P’NAI will continue to design and create high-quality and affordable apparel & accessories without undermining overall trends and styles. Our mission is to ensure that every wearer will feel happy, comfortable, fashionable, and confident, with the pride of showcasing their heritage. We pay extra attention to empowering immigrants to express their uniqueness and diverse culture that will allow them to reach their dreams.
