Amy Giang, owner of Lube Town, with three locations in Alberta, Canada, was recently honored with the Immigrants of Distinction for Entrepreneurship and Innovation Award.
“I am overwhelmed with gratitude, and my heart is full,” Giang said. “My family and I immigrated to Canada in the late ‘80s with less than $1, and none of us spoke a word of English. We commit ourselves to never take a penny from the system and never did. My parents worked hard and sacrificed everything so my brothers and I could have an education. We've been offered nothing but kindness by all those we met. The few who were not nice to us offered us the most kindness. For because of them, we learned what it meant to be disappointed, how to persevere, how to figure out what we still needed to learn and how to patiently wait for the next opportunity.”
Giang said she can only express her gratitude toward family, friends, vendors and supporters for their unwavering support!
