In this segment, Daughter of Change, Adele NGoy – a talented fashion designer from the Democratic Republic of Congo – talks about fleeing her home with her children and starting a new life, a new business, and a new non-profit in Maine. Four years ago, Adele and I met over tea to discuss our mutual passion to help other women. At that time, Daughters of Change was just a name that I came up with at 3am. Adele was working in alterations at a local formal wear store, and in the beginning stages of starting a non-profit. Adele is a true testament to taking a risk, following your dreams, and not giving up.
