My name is Jaqulyn. I love my name & every meaning behind my name. I was named after one of the most amazing women to ever grace this world, Jaqulyn Watson. In her life, she did one of the most selfless acts a person could possibly do! She sponsored my parents and their four kids to the United States from Cambodia. I am truly blessed and honored to be named after such a strong, beautiful and caring woman.
My parents were born and raised in Cambodia. They survived through a war and a genocide. In 1991, they finally made it to the United States to start a new life. I am extremely proud of them and every step they have taken to raise a family in a new country. My parents and siblings have pushed through tough time and continue to work hard for everything they have and I am grateful that I have all of them to look up to.
I was born and raised in Seattle, Washington. I cannot imagine my life anywhere else, although I’ve dreamed of living in Las Vegas many times. My dogs and my family have been my whole world. I admit that it has taken me a while (26 years) to figure out who I am and what kind of person I want to be. Growing up is crazy & difficult but I’ve learned how to be my own best friend!
In the future, I hope to one day open my own restaurant/lounge. The focus of my restaurant will be to have everyone from guests to my staff as one big family. This will be a place where we can all connect and be there for each other at all times… as well as enjoy some amazing, delicious meals and cocktails!
