Who Am I?
My name is David Huynh. I was born and raised in the great state of New York, being the son of two hardworking and dedicated immigrant parents and the brother of a caring, supportive sister. Growing up, my parents have always made every effort to make my sister's and my life as comfortable as possible as they struggled to make every penny count, and all they've asked back from us is to be good children. Fortunately, their strive to achieve a better life eventually lead us to be in a much more comfortable position, and for that, I am forever grateful. One thing they've always prioritized was school: get good grades, graduate college, and get a job - and so we abide. Here I am in my last year of college, always questioning how I wanted to live my life. Do I really want to work a 9-5 for the rest of my life, doing something that, although I am interested in, not too passionate about? A plethora of times I've thought about this to myself, and knowing myself well, I realize that I have a very entrepreneurial mindset, always wanting to do things on my own, making a living with the skills I possess, and being my own boss. With this in mind, I began brainstorming different thoughts and ideas I have in my head that I could share with the world. Well, one particular passion that popped into my mind was fashion. I love a nice outfit because, to me, the presentation of a person creates a remarkable impact on one's impression. So, with the free time I had during quarantine, I've decided to start my own clothing brand, a brand that is accessible to the general public yet stylish year-round. My intent for this store is to not only share my ideas with the world but to also make my parents proud knowing that their kids' success is the product of their hardships. Ultimately, I want to be able to give back to my parents what they have given my sister and me, happiness.
The name Evanto derives from the name Bonus Eventus - the ancient Roman personification of good outcomes.
With everything in life, there will always be a 50/50 dilemma; whether something does or does not happen. In our lives, we cannot control what has happened in the past and what will happen in the future; however, we do have control over what we do in the present. Every day, each and every one of us perseveres to be in a better position than where we were yesterday, but we are not guaranteed anything in life. With the launch of Evanto, my vision is to bring affordable streetwear clothing to the public so that people can feel effortlessly confident in what they are wearing in order for them to create that first impression that would ultimately lead to a good outcome.
