I’m Emily Elizabeth Duong. I’m a full-time entrepreneur, writer, and co-host of the Young & Ambitious podcast.
But before all that, I was born and raised in a very small town in Pennsylvania and pursued my ultimate dream at the age of eighteen to move to Southern California to attend college. Prior to this, I was an elite-level competitive figure skater and USTA-ranked tennis player (top 30 Middle States and #1 in Central PA).
At the age of 16, I founded my first business Elite Skate Wear, a custom figure skating dress brand and experience, from purchasing a custom skating dress, learning mindset tips for the sport, and engaging with the Elite Skate Wear skating community. This became my full-time hustle at the start of my Junior year in college.
In May 2019, I graduated from Chapman University with Cum Laude honors with a B.A. in Strategic and Corporate Communication and a minor in Entrepreneurship. Nowadays, you can find me working full-time from my computer either at a quaint little coffee shop or in my own nook of an office in my apartment. When I’m not busy working behind my computer screen, I’m probably on the ice coaching or training, traveling to a new city, or relaxing at home reading a book from my bedside table.
I love serving the world by giving back to my community with the knowledge I have and showing individuals, especially young females, that we too, can live a strategic and healthy lifestyle by simply making the decision to do so.
This is the world through my lens. Enjoy.
