Doe Deere—when luck turns the table around!

Some events can be very life changing, there were many in Doe Deere’s life as well. Especially in the spring of 1999, Doe, her mother, and sister met the social worker who introduced them to a non-profit legal organization named as Sanctuary for Families. The organization helped women immigrants who were in a bad situation.

Dorchen Leidholdt, the leader of the organization helped them get back onto their feet. She provided Doe’s mother a good job of an accountant, Doe Deere soon got into a Fashion Institute of Technology, from there her walk of achieving her dream started. Her sister also got enrolled in Columbia University and graduated on scholarship.

By the following year 2000, the family was able to afford a home of their own and run a life they once wished of. By late 2000’s Doe adopted a moniker, “Doe Deere” and followed her passion of becoming an entrepreneur. By 2008 she founded her own make up company and named it as “Lime Crime” and no doubt it was a huge achievement. She initially hired 35 women from Los Angeles and gave them the opportunity that every woman dreams of while working a job. For twenty long years, the famous and one of the most successful business owners, Doe Deere, achieved her dream that she dreamt of in her teens. She is heartily thankful to America, and the people she was surrounded with at the most vulnerable stage of her life, who helped her to the extent that a homeless became a CEO.

She considers herself a lucky lady because she along with her family emigrated from Russia to America and received so much affection and help by the society which they risked all at once while leaving Russia. They enjoy the best luxuries in the world now. If a homeless, like Doe can make herself capable of achieving goals and dreams, being a CEO currently, what’s your excuse then?
