My name is Monica, i was born and raised in Mexico City to retail storeowners, I grew up surrounded by clothes and fabrics and with a keen eye for fashion.
Moved to Halifax, NS to complete my bachelor's degree at Saint Mary's University. That's where i met my husband! 😍
After graduating I moved to Toronto and got an e-commerce job at a big department store. That's when I discovered online shopping and I loved it 💻🖤 After two years, i told my husband, "since we have no children to support, i'm gonna quit my job!" - i had plans of my own and wanted to travel too #yolo ✈🌍 - well, I discovered I was pregnant with our first child, Zein 👦🏻, soon after resigning so everything was placed on hold, except travelling 😂 #whengodlaughsatyourplans
And when I thought my professional dreams were over, Zein was that much needed force that pushed me out of my comfort zone to follow my dreams. Pingo Apparel is the reflection of what I've been wanting to do for so many years - to have my own business, and to do it right! #sustainablefashion 😊
Pingo Apparel was launched in March 2, 2018 and a few days later, on March 18, we welcomed our second child Maia! 👸🏻 Thank you all for being our first supporters. Hope you continue to join me and my little family in this journey, and please share our page with your family and friends! 😁🖤
