“I learned how to crochet at the beginning of the fall semester. My friend Syiion taught me. He taught me the majority of the basics, and then I learned how to create actual creations from Youtube and TikTok. One of my favorite things that I’ve crocheted is a sunflower coaster. I gave one to my bio lab instructor, Professor D. Hoyle, and her face lit up, and it seemed as though I made her day. This made me happy to know that something I made can bring someone joy. Initially, I didn’t think that crocheting would change my life much, but now I realize that I’ve met more people and become more of an extrovert because of my crochet business. I finally got annoyed hearing my friends and family tell me to start a business, and after realizing that I could make almost anything, I decided to start this business. I want to be able to crochet for more people and advertise my business as much as possible. But honestly, if I could just continue to crochet to make people happy, that’d be a blessing.”
