Q and A with Chloe from South Korea, living in Dallas, Texas
“It’s important to be grateful for all the things we have and to be positive since we have no idea how things will ultimately turn out.”
Q: What are you passionate about?
A: I’ve always been passionate about traveling, fashion, and good food! My favorite cuisines are Korean and Chinese!
My business is 100% handmade. I make handmade aprons, eco-friendly bags, and accessories such as ribbons or scrunchies from scratch. I started Chloe Choe in 2018, and that’s when I got married and started to cook. As I said, I love food, so that’s where I started to cook myself and I tried to find a pretty apron but I couldn’t. I decided to make my own and then people loved to buy it, so I started my own handmade business. Fashion is my passion, and I am thrilled to have been preselected for Fashion Week in April. However, the cost to enter with the right sponsors is $8,000, and I need help to make it happen.
Q: What were your younger years like?
A: My dad passed away when I was 10, and my mom raised me and my younger brother all by herself in Korea while building her own business. I was so inspired by her example that I decided to come to America and try to make a successful business here.
Q: What is something valuable you’d like others to know?
A: My biggest lesson is that it’s really important for women to work on mental health and feeling good about themselves. It’s really easy to become depressed or sad at life events when they happen. It’s important to be grateful for all the things we have and to be positive since we have no idea how things will ultimately turn out. Some of the biggest blessings in my life came after what I initially thought was a bad event.
Q: What does feminism mean to you?
A: Feminism just means that women should have equal opportunities as men.
