Doe Deere’s dream was to inspire women to never give up, and to let them know they can achieve anything, and she is doing exactly that. She has been and still is a trend setter in the makeup industry.
Deere was born in Russia on June 15, 1981 but grew-up in New York City where she moved at the age of seventeen. While waiting for her mom records of education to be sent to the United States her and her family became homeless because it took so long. No one wanted to hire her mom or give her a job to make ends meet. They were forced to check into homeless shelters and stand in lines back and forth to receive a meal.
Deere saw the situation and started to write all her ideas on paper. Her first thought was becoming a fashion designer. After months of this Deere and her family met someone whom would help them and introduce them to new things. A lawyer who inspire women by the name of Dorchen Leidholdt helped Deere get into the Fashion Institute of Technology and helped her sister into Columbia University where years later her sister graduated on a scholarship with honors.
After years of struggle, became success for Deere. Her company Lime Crime has become successful and she now inspire women all over the world to be themselves. Sometimes you must go through the struggles of life, to be successful, have a story, and appreciate what you will gain.
