Highlight: Harold Isasis

Black History Month was introduced in the U.S. in 1976 as a way to honor the many achievements derived from the African American community. Though it dates back over 40 years, African Americans continue to break barriers present day. Here at Mulberry & Grand, we’re committed to diversity within our workplace and value that in our customers. On that note, we’d like to expand on this idea of diversity, and highlight a few members from our team that are living out their most fabulous dreams!

Introducing, Harold!

What is your role at Mulberry & Grand?
I’m a Sales Associate! I help customers find the perfect item for themselves or gifts!
Tell us a little about you and your family’s heritage?
I’m originally from Venezuela. My dad’s family are all Venezuelan native and my mom’s are mixed Venezuelan and Spain, which gave me a bit of both worlds!
Even though you have been in America for a while now, I’m sure Venezuela’s culture impacts you daily! What are some traditions that you appreciate that you will always carry on?
One of the things I love the most about Venezuelan people are the hard work and responsibility they put in everything they do. I feel like that’s one of the things I’m most proud of about being from Venezuela. I  always strive to be a hard worker; just like my family.
What do you want to be when you grow up?
A successful person, who can look back and appreciate all of the goals they reached in their life.

Who in your life inspires you to follow your dreams? How?
My mom. From a young age, she always taught me to believe I could do whatever I wanted to do and work hard enough to make it happen.
New York City is a very progressive place to live in; as it comes to equal rights. Do you feel like you face any issues of inequality because of your race?
Not at all. I feel like NYC is the most culture- diverse city in the world. And that was the main reason I chose this beautiful city to live in.
Why do you think it’s so important for our country to recognize and celebrate Black History Month?
I believe it’s really important to recognize the achievements that African-Americans have done; fighting for equality and giving so many people hope through the years.
Follow Harold!
