Lin's Story

"...After a while, I realized I was actually very good at making things with my hands, and I was encouraged to start creating more—even designing new products!..."

In 2015, I was at my most depressed and disappointed moment, with no idea what I was going to do in the future. I didn’t have any friends, and I felt trapped in a job where I was frequently abused and exploited. When I met the Freeleaf team, not only did they not discriminate against me because of my past, but they welcomed me to join their team and their new company. My self-esteem was so low at that time, and I had no idea what I was doing or how to make any products. Still, I always received care and encouragement.  

Together, we learned how to make Freeleaf’s first products—knotted rugs. After a while, I realized I was actually very good at making things with my hands, and I was encouraged to start creating more—even designing new products! Over the last two years I have been able to develop this skill, and today I design many of the new Freeleaf products.

Since coming to work at Freeleaf, life has not always been perfect. My family has had many financial pressures leading to debt, and learning to create healthy boundaries in my relationships has been difficult.  After I had my son in March 2017, I really struggled with depression and suicidal thoughts. But again, everyone at the Freeleaf office faithfully encouraged me—even allowing me to bring my son to the office so I could still work and receive a sustainable income. Slowly, I once again began to have hopes and dreams—not just for me, but for my son as well.

If I didn’t start working Freeleaf, I would still be working in an environment full of abuse and exploitation. I never would have been able to find out who I truly am and know my value as a woman. I never would have learned how capable I am to make beautiful things and do something I can really excel at. I have come to believe, fully, that I can be a good staff and a good mother and a good future wife. Before Freeleaf, my life was so dark, but today it is full of color and hope for the future.
