Doe Deere is a successful entrepreneur, a mother to, and immigrant. She founded Lime Crime, a cosmetic brand. She engineered her own success. Her core mission is to inspire other people, women in particular.
She was born in Russia, a place called Xenia Vorotova situated in Izhevsk, she was brought up as a Jewish girl. Doe grew up believing that United States is a place where all dreams are possible. She drew the message from movies, magazines and music about America. She was obsessed with English language and America culture, and kept wondering of how it feel to be a resident of U.S. At the age of 17, she moved with her family; sister and mother to United States in search of better livelihood. They settled in New York, as with many immigrants, New York is America.
In 1998, the total population of New York was 7.4 million, a sharp contract to 0.5million population of the region she was born in. They knew New York as “swim or sink” place, so they had to work their way up. Her mother’s savings was not much and could not sustain them for long. It also took time for her mother’s education records to be transferred from Russia to America, and none was willing to employ her without the credentials.
During the spring of 1999, breakthrough came when one of the social workers introduced them to Sanctuary for families, a registered non-profit organization that assist immigrants, especially women in bad conditions.
In 2000, they were transferred from homeless shelters to better homes. Where they started living more comfortable.
In late 2000,Doe Deere discovered her passion in entrepreneurship and started her own makeup firm, Lime crime, the company became a big success as it now employ over 35 people and inspires women around the globe. America offered her a chance to pursue her vision. She now have a niece home, successful business and lives happily with her family.
