Lime Crime

Doe Deere; An example of perseverance and success

Russia but she had her eyes set elsewhere. Through music and the media at the time she began to see the United States as a place where she would be able to escape her troubles and have an opportunity to succeed. At 17 she got the chance to move to the United States along with her mother and sister. They landed in New York and with them being immigrants and having a difficult time transferring over her mother’s credentials as an accountant they had no choice but to live off of their savings while her mother would clean other people’s apartments and she walked dogs to help pay their bills, but unfortunately it was not enough.

After some time, the three of them had to go to a homeless shelter because of their financial troubles. They kept working and saving their earnings in order to have enough to move into their own place. They got in contact with a non-profit organization that helped her mom get a job as an accountant, helped her get into FIT a fashion based college in New York because while in the shelter Doe would sketch out ideas of fashion and clothing designs, and the social worker also helped Doe’s sister get a full scholarship to Columbia University in New York City as well.

Xenia Vorotova became Doe Deere in the year 2000 and in 2008 she founded her own make up company called Lime Crime. Through this company Doe Deere helped empower many women and inspired women to express themselves and hold back. She has now been in business for 20 years and her company is doing very well. She makes emphasis on the fact that a woman who was homeless and living in a shelter not giving up on her dream to be successful she was able to make it to where she is now. She is very thankful for the opportunity she had in America to be able to pursuit her dream.
