Hey There, I’m Erica Mintu & Welcome to My Lifestyle Blog!
I am SO glad you are here and want to help you get to know me better. Afterall, that’s what my Lifestyle Blog is all about.
I am proud of my roots and embrace my unique melting pot of diversity that helped make me, ME! EVERYONE…and I mean it when I say, EVERYONE, has the hardest time guessing my background and I’ve been referenced by almost all of the darker, tan complexion Disney princesses: Jasmine, Moana, Mulan, or Pocahontas. Haha. First of all, that’s such a huge compliment in itself and honestly, I CAN look like each of them depending on my hairstyle and outfit combos. 😉
But, the question that I get almost every single day of my life does have a simple answer that doesn’t reference anyone else but my true ethnicity, which is that I am Filipino and South Korean.
I grew up in Pikeville, Kentucky & that’s where I call “Home”. But, I have lived in Knoxville, Tennessee for almost 4 years!
Growing up Asian in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains has been one of the biggest blessings of my life & I like to identify as “AppalAsian” 🙂 Haha, that’s right! There aren’t too many women like myself back “Home” and I’m thankful to have such a unique background that has shaped my heart for acceptance and embracing diversity.
I use my blog as a space to share all of the things that I am passionate about and to give an insider look at my daily life. I hope that through my adventures & unique perspective that I can inspire others through my entrepreneurial endeavors, style, decor, humor, personal experiences, and to be a positive role model in a world that is ever-changing.
I challenge others to expand their minds with phenomenal energy and push for lofty goals because you only live once and your tomorrow is never promised!
I’m a full-time lover of life and a real estate agent working in Knoxville, TN & surrounding areas. The opportunities I have to help families in their most personal purchase of their lives is one of the joys that I get to experience each and every day. I aim to innovate my market and provide exceptional client care through a hometown heart, client education, & with transparency ALWAYS.
Enjoy my take on life, fashion, travel, interior design, fitness, entrepreneurship, and writing.
Thank you SO much for stopping by! Your support means the world to me. I know you will always leave with some food for thought and a little bit of sunshine from my heart to yours.
