You may recognize Thungc from our previous coverage, when he was named the “Alignable” 2022 Business Person of the Year for Kent. Through JLT Web Solutions, his digital marketing company supports local small businesses to help them gain a competitive edge in the digital marketplace. Along with a desire to help other businesses, Thungc has long been committed to building our local community.
In 2017, he launched the Mien International Enrichment Network (MIEN), a non-profit organization that aims to help the Iu Mien people advance in society by providing them access to literacy resources, health education and resources, and preserving history and culture.
“We need to understand that business and community are inseparable. Businesses in the community are what build the community. The community is what supports the businesses. They both must co-exist. As business owners and employees of a business, when we serve the community, we are serving ourselves. Therefore, go and serve because you will be served.” said Thungc.
Thungc’s desire to create impact is also evident in his past fourteen years of service in the Kent School District. As much as he loved his time there, he always held a desire to start his own business and began to pursue that dream around 2016, subsequently growing the fledgling venture to a full time business in 2020.
