Alyssa Mongroo Blog

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.
