Stacey Kwong was born and raised in Los Angeles, California, to immigrant Chinese parents. From reselling phones in high school, to starting a failed clothing line in college, it was as if she was wired to start her own business. But growing up queer in a strict Asian American household, with less than stellar report cards, she struggled to find her passion.

She and her business partner found success through boba, with MILK+T, a Los Angeles–based food-truck concept, featuring the first self-serve boba bar on wheels. With tens of thousands of delicious, high-quality drinks sold, MILK+T proudly grew to three owned-and-operated stores in Los Angeles, California, Portland, Oregon, and Las Vegas, Nevada.   Beyah del Mundo was born and raised in Manila, Philippines, to Filipino and Chinese parents, and moved to Los Angeles, California, in 2003. As a native Filipino, entrepreneurship skills were ingrained in her head as the only means of survival, never as a career choice. In adulthood, Beyah was able to overcome adversity by thinking outside the box. Instead of complaining about her immigration disadvantages, she decided to outwork everyone. In 2015, she received a partnership opportunity to start MILK+T, a self-serve boba-bar concept that soon would prove to change the way the world gets #BOBAWASTED.
