Doe Deere started out in Russia. Like many girls and boys from controlling countries, she dreamed of one day coming to America and making a name for herself in the world. She had always adored fashion and make up products. Her admiration inspired her to daydream about her fashionable ideas. Her mother, in fact, had the same dream to come to America and start a new future. So when her mother saved up enough money to leave Russia, they set out for New York City.
Upon arriving in New York, they were so excited to get to work on their goals and dreams for their future. However, it was not as easy as they had hoped for, but more difficult then expected. Though the trials were rough. They hung in there. Her mother tried getting a job in the field of accounting which is what she was good at in Russia. But no one would hire her due to the fact they did not have her school records to account for her knowledge in this area of work.
Instead of giving up and going home, their dreams for their future were stronger than ever. They picked up odd and end jobs to make ends meet. But the ends never really quite met. So eventually they ended up in a homeless shelter. But even that could not stop Doe Deere or her mother from dreaming their passions for their future.
One day, a social worker introduced them to a lady heading the non-profit organization Sanctuary for families. This lady in her self was very inspirational to Doe Deere, and in turn, this woman saw potential in Doe and her mother and sister. So she helped get Doe’s mom a job in accounting. While visiting them in the shelter, she had seen Doe’s fashion sketches and so she helped get Doe into a fashion institute of technology. And then later helped Doe’s sister get into Columbia University.
Now 20 years later, Doe Deere has her own line of cosmetics called Lime Crime. She feels very blest to have had the trials that she did a long the way to get to where she is now. She feels America is truly grate. She is glad that she can share her story to everyone to let them know that no matter how hard it may be at the time, if you stay strong on your pursuit to fulfil your dreams and desires, you will accomplish them too.
