Climber Story: Sophia Duong - Dynamite Starfish

To start, tell us a little bit about yourself

My name is Sophia, I am 28 years old and I am a Business owner of my own women's clothing and accessories brand. I truly believe that we are capable of anything we put our minds to :)

How did you start climbing?

A friend of mine introduced me to climbing in LA and took me to a gym there!

What impact has climbing had on your life?

It's allowed me to conquer my fear of heights and has introduced me to some of the most amazing people I've ever met, including my boyfriend @rockentry!

What are some other things you do that you find most fulfilling?

Working on my business, reading books, spending time with my family and loved ones.

If you could tell the world one thing, what would it be?

We are all so much stronger than we think we are!

Favorite thing about Dynamite Starfish?

That it's woman owned and operated! Love that so much!

Is there something you're working on that you'd like to tell our community about? We love a good story.

I'm working on growing my business and am looking to start more brands related to my niche.
