Soon after coming to America, Doe Deere and her family ended up in a homeless shelter where they stayed for around six months. During her stay here, aside from working, she began to draw sketches of fashion designs. A social worker was introduced to her and her mother. This worker helped her mother to get a steady job as an accountant. They also helped Deere get into a fashion designing school. Soon after, they were able to move out of the homeless shelter and into an apartment.
Doe Deere still had bigger dreams for herself though. She wanted to become an entrepreneur. She continued to work hard and save as much money as she could.
