We asked Tiffany about her love for helping others, beauty and self love…
Everything that PinkChoseMe embodies is so inspiring. Please share the story of the beginning phases of your foundation.
The beginning of PinkChoseMe… the idea came to my thoughts while I was doing radiation. I was reading to another patients wife whom traveled to the United States to undergo treatment. The couple was older and English wasn’t very good. I could see she was nervous so I would read The NY Times to her. We would see each other every day so our meetings were anticipated. It was a Thursday, I was reading the times to her and an article with women dressed in Pink were walking for breast cancer in Central Park and the women were happy… it was the first time I asked God “why” why was I in the base of a hospital being zapped by radiation and where were people, women like me? That’s when PinkChoseme Foundation came to life. I wrote Pinkchoseme on The NY Times newspaper and from there I got to work.
