    Episode 2: Gemmae Bake Shop

    Prescilla Tolentino had, by all accounts, a successful bakery business in the Philippines when her husband convinced her to move their family to the U.S. about 30 years ago.

    “He said, ‘Why not try it?’ Tolentino said. “So we did.”

    They packed up and left everything in their native country to start over--joining relatives already in the U.S. and making a new home in West Long Beach.

    This profile on Prescilla and Catherine Tolentino, the mother-daughter duo behind West Long Beach's Gemmae Bake Shop, is part of a series exploring the successes of immigrants in Long Beach. Immigrant Success is a collaborative podcast project between Long Beach Post and PalacioMagazine.com.
