Today we have a true hustle story. Our Guest, Trisha Bantigue is the CEO and Co-founder of Queenly, a marketplace for buying and selling formal gowns & dresses. But what’s more inspiring is Trisha’s journey to get to this point. She immigrated from the Philippines to the US at a very young age, and had to face quite a few challenges in her personal life. In spite of this she put herself through school at Berkeley and paid for it through many side gigs. One such side gig was modeling, which burgeoned into her participating & winning some serious pageants, including Miss California Earth in 2016, and Miss Asian Global in 2017. Trisha did all this, while working at tech companies like Google, FB & Uber. It was here, while modeling, she noticed a gap in the market to serve the large demand for pageant gowns & dresses & that became Queenly, a one stop shop for formalwear for women!
