Malyneath’s family escaped the Cambodian Killing Fields on foot when she was just an infant. They were refugees from a war torn country and were fortunate enough to come to the United States after being sponsored by a Presbyterian church from Maryland. They were a shattered family looking for a second chance at life. She found her life’s passion in two things: building businesses and serving God by helping people looking for second chances. Towards those goals, Malyneath is currently serving as the Executive Director for Fair Trade Long Beach as well as being the Founder of Global Fashion Mission, an international distributor of fair trade goods. She also serves as a board member for the non-profit Project Missionary Position, Women for Women Foundation and as a core member of the Long Beach Human Trafficking task force, all of which combat human trafficking.
