Revisiting Childhood Memories from a 2nd Generation Vietnamese American Lens w/ Jenn Ho from Lawrence & Argyle

For this week's S1, Ep 7, Jenn Ho, the creator of Lawrence & Argyle sits down with The Banh Mi Chronicles podcast as she reflects on her experience growing up as an American-born Viet-American and witnesses the challenges that her parents as refugees from the Vietnam War faced during the US refugee resettlement.  Originally born in Chicago, and spent her childhood to adulthood in San Diego, she moved to Chicago.  It was by living in Chicago's Uptown neighborhood that she created the "Lawrence & Argyle" merchandise (named after the Asia on Argyle intersection in Uptown) that reflects the immigrant / refugee experience.  She shares her inspiration behind the message and the importance of proudly identifying as an immigrant / refugee in a time where these communities have been under attack. Be sure to check out this episode and grab yourself a souvenir from the Lawrence & Argyle website below!


Jenn Ho is the daughter of Vietnamese refugees. During the day, she is an archivist at CSU San Marcos. On the side, she runs Lawrence & Argyle, an apparel company that celebrates America's immigrant heritage. She lives in San Diego with her chihuahua, Olive.
