Today you will find out what Tea Mak has done with her life after a traumatic childhood! It is a remarkable story.

In 1975, a war began in Cambodia. It was the largest genocide since the Holocaust. An estimated 3+ million people were killed. The Khmer Rouge dominated for years to follow.  In 1981, Tea’s mother fled to Thailand, where Tea was born in a refugee camp. From the moment she was born, weighing less than 4 pounds, Tea required a fight to survive. She almost lost her life 3 times as a baby, before turning 1.

In 1982 Tea and her mother were transferred to another refugee camp in the Philippines and in 1984 they were sponsored and rescued by a Christian relief organization and relocated to the United States. Today, Tea is the Founder and CEO of Miss Global and Miss Global Foundation. Their slogan is “Empowering Women, Embracing Cultures and Embodying the Beauty Within”. #beautywithaprupose #MGFNation
