I'm actually crying because I am so happy to finally own the beautiful Lao dolls!” - Sayphin H. ELGIN, ILLINOIS, KANE, March 27, 2024 /EINPresswire / -- Niphaphone Laura Robertson, formerly known as Niphaphone Sanavongsay, a visionary entrepreneur, author, and advocate for cultural diversity, proudly introduces her latest book, "Noy's Journey to Belonging," and innovative Lao Dream Dolls at a special event hosted at the Gail Borden Public Library.

The event held on March 16th, titled "Publish like a Pro," showcased Robertson's dedication to mentoring and inspiring aspiring writers. Featuring seven panelists whom Robertson has personally mentored and inspired, the presentation provided invaluable insights into the world of publishing and writing.

At the core of the event was the introduction of her latest book "Noy's Journey to Belonging," a captivating tale that resonates with readers of all ages, exploring themes of identity, belonging, and the power of resilience. Through the eyes of the character, Noy, readers embark on a transformative journey filled with hope, courage, and the importance of embracing one's heritage. Noy's journey resonates deeply with the author's own experiences, shining light on her resilience in overcoming bullying as a Lao refugee child on a quest to find belonging in a new home.

In a heartwarming twist, Robertson's former third-grade teacher made a surprise appearance at the event, marking a touching reunion after over 35 years. Moved by Robertson's journey from a Lao refugee child struggling to speak English to a successful author and entrepreneur, her former teacher expressed profound pride and admiration for her achievements.

The event unfolded with Robertson sharing her personal journey to becoming a published author and speaker, highlighting her desire for recognition of the beauty and resilience of her Lao heritage and rich history. This heartfelt message resonated deeply with the audience, who responded with praise and admiration.

Robertson's vision of creating a doll to complement her book character, blossomed into Lao Dream Dolls, gaining popularity across social media. With posts garnishing over 35,000 views and heartfelt comments, "after 40+ years we finally have a doll and book representing us!" "I'm actually crying because I am so happy to finally own the beautiful Lao dolls!", it highlights the excitement and need for Lao representation. Lao Dream Dolls feature handmade, authentic Lao silk attire, each one uniquely crafted. With hand-painted faces and flexible hands, they can be posed in your favorite Lao dance "fawn" position. Robertson's dolls and books are displayed at the Center of Lao Studies in California. At the launch, orders flooded in, with shipments reaching worldwide, even as far as New Zealand!
