HAPPY INDIAN ARRIVAL DAY TRINIDAD 🇹🇹 ✨In honor of Indian arrival day I’m featuring my friend @eashgaf on the blog! She started a new sustainable jewelry company that here in the Hudson Valley @goodearth_hv and I think it’s just truly amazing! She’s breaking down standards and also showing people they can fulfill their dreams no matter what! CLICK THE LINK IN MY BIO TO LEARN MORE!
Alyssa is not only a fellow Hudson Valley girl (she grew up right here in Dutchess County), but she is also a Trinidadian American (like me!). I'm so proud that she has done a feature on me as a WOC business owner and featured Good Earth Hudson Valley on her blog as a feature for Indian Arrival Day.
Indian Arrival Day is a holiday observed in Trinidad & Tobago where we recognize the Indian indentured servants who came to the Islands in search of a better life. We honor their sacrifices and celebrate the culture and traditions they brought with them to the West Indies. Being Indo-Caribbean-American myself, this means a lot to me because it's a way to honor the multiple layers that are part of my ancestry and have brought me to where I am today.
