It's not easy being a woman of color on an entrepreneurial journey, but thanks to women like Blackbough Swim founder Jemina Ty, every day brings us one step closer to a more diverse, inclusive and empowered future.
Traveling back to 2017, the Manila native struggled to find a bikini that went beyond the standard modest swimsuit available in the Philippines.
