We are so excited to have so many incredibly talented women in our organization! Each one has a beautiful story and a path that has brought us all together. We are sharing a bit about some of these women and their businesses here.
The lovely Hailey Chapman is a senior at TAMUCC and the creator/owner of Teacup Goods (and a few other businesses as well!) to name a few amazing accomplishments for this young entrepreneur. Her own creation, all her products are made WITH tea.
Teacup Goods creates and curates a wide variety of quality loose-leaf tea blends. Those blends are used to make jelly, shortbread cookies, bath bombs, soaps, bath salts, or just to drink and enjoy! Hailey's philosphy is: "No matter the question, tea is always the answer!"
When we asked Hailey why she she joined WES:CC, she replied, "As a full-time college student who lives at home, I really knew nothing about starting a business. I came to WES:CC hoping to find support and mentorship, and also found sisterhood and opportunity beyond my wildest dreams."
