Ambreesh Celebrates Women's History Month
International Women's Day is a special day to celebrate and recognize the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women around the world. It is an opportunity to raise awareness, not just of the progress made, but of the ongoing struggle for gender equality, and to show solidarity with those who are still fighting for the rights of women and girls. To make this day more fun, we can share stories, art, music, and videos that highlight the incredible accomplishments and strength of women around the world. We can also take the time to recognize our own female role models and mentors, and thank them for their support and guidance. Let's make this International Women's Day an occasion to appreciate, honor, and uplift the women in our lives!
This day has been observed on March 8th since 1911 and is celebrated in many countries worldwide. This day is a reminder of the progress women have made throughout history and is an opportunity to recognize the hard work and contributions of all women. International Women's Day is also a call to action and a time to reflect on how far we have come and how much further we still have to go in achieving true gender equality. The day is marked with events that honor the struggles of women and celebrate their achievements, and it serves as an inspirational reminder to keep striving and working towards a world of true gender equality.
On International Women's Day, we honor the story of our founder, Preet Johal. A woman who immigrated from India to New York in her youth, Preet found her passion for cosmetics in high school. Despite life taking her in a different direction, she found success in the male-dominated industry of construction, managing multiple bay area companies. Preet learned a wealth of skills and lessons through her experiences, but something was still missing. Then, during a seemingly casual conversation with her daughter, Preet was asked “Why do you do what you do? What makes you happy?” This prompted serious reflection and led Preet to take a leap of faith and pursue her passion for cosmetics. She partnered with a lab to develop the 24K Liquid Lipstick formula and Ambreesh was born. At Ambreesh, we celebrate the beauty of self-expression and the power of trusting yourself, believing in your abilities, embracing your vulnerabilities and pursuing happiness to feel truly beautiful.
