BY DENNY LEE
@ VOL 4 ON APR 15, 2017

As a full time student that attended lots of tuition back in 2011, the only hobby that Denny Lee had was playing with polymer clay. Started from scratch to something that can be sold, Denny was extremely happy to know that more and more people appreciate his hardwork. Hobby that becomes a business and then back into a hobby again, was a long and tough experience. Nevertheless, Denny believes that you should just believe in yourself, as anything is possible.
