Mai Vee Vang
Mai Vee Vang is a Hmong model, actress, artist, creative director, and creator. She was born in a Thailand refugee camp and eventually took refuge in America at an early age with her family, therefore, she is fluent in both Hmong and English. Mai Vee Vang more than anything else is an empathic artist; she channels art through all mediums and forms such as painting, drawing, sculpting, fashion designing, jewelry making, soldering, dancing, singing, the list goes on. Specifically, through modeling and acting, she is presented with the opportunity to create art, be the art, and express it.
She began her modeling career by joining a local talent workshop and from there she participated in local fashion shows and creatively directed her own photoshoots. She is now a talent managed by KP1Studios. Mai Vee strongly believes that to be a model and actress the work begins from the inside. Being amazing starts from feeling amazing; it is energy harnessed within and projected to the outside world. So to Mai Vee, being a model and actress is a lifestyle, not an on-set persona. As an artist and talent, she hopes to inspire and promote an understanding community that is built on positivity stemmed from self-love.
