Our Mission

Making the invisible, visible.

Educated in the Quaker school system in small town outside of Philadelphia, Founder & Creative Director, Kelly Lan, believed there is a light in everyone – and Asian women like herself – should be celebrated and seen in popular culture, history books and art.

As a proud daughter of Taiwanese immigrants, she also believed in order to prosper, one must feel grounded and turn the complexities in our narrative into power. So, Kelly began mobilizing the creative diasporic communities to co-own and express the stories we want to tell, authentically.

Hello Prosper was built out of necessity – to pursue the unanswered questions that society overlooked.

The simplification of our Asian heritage, the feeling of displacement, our nonlinear history. We minimize the built-up of confusion for individuals living with a hyphenated identity by learning the stories of our ancestors and unlearning what is preventing us from loving ourselves.

We craft hands-on educational products that serve the needs of our community one story at a time.

We need more identity based resources
