A WORD FROM OUR FOUNDER
Every kid is asked this question: what do you want to be when you grow up? The way I answered this was, "I want to start my own business because I don't want to work for anyone." Pretty sassy for a kid but it was truly because I always wanted to become an entrepreneur (it runs in my blood).
Seven years ago, I discovered a new found love for oatmeal. It became a core part of my daily life and became my warm, good morning hug that jump started my day. At the time, I was attending USC for business school and traveling in-between school days for modeling and oatmeal got me through it all. After I graduated, I participated in my first Fashion Week. It was more like a month starting in NY then going to London, Milan then finally Paris. Dozens of castings, late night fittings and several fashion shows later, I came home and saw that I was featured by Vogue as one of the 5 Models to Know from Marc Jacobs Spring 2017. As excited as I was, all I could think about was “I WANT MY OATMEAL”.
The issue with all the oatmeal on the market is that 1) it's too high in refined sugars or 2) the texture or flavor wasn't appetizing. I tried to find an option that suited my needs when I was constantly on the go but none of them fit the profile. Sometimes I felt like I was eating baby food or bland cardboard.
After coming home from the madness of Fashion Week, I finally realized what kind of business I wanted to create. I wanted to share my daily dose of warmth and happiness with the rest of the world. With that in mind, I set out to recreate my homemade oatmeal on-the-go (warm, creamy oats cooked in almond milk, a spoonful of crunchy nut butter and slightly sweetened with unrefined sugars). To that end, Mylk Labs was born.
I hope Mylk Labs products can bring you good health, convenience and much happiness as it does to me!
