In early 2013, Candelles began as a hobby and grew into a flourishing business in what seems overnight... sort of. After going on a few month hiatus and accepting defeat (starting up a business is no piece of cake), my grandmother was diagnosed with cancer abruptly. Immediately wanting to help, I had offered to make candles again to sell them all profit towards her treatment, and it struck me that not only am I doing this for someone I love, I get the advantage of doing something I love just as well. After a few long conversations about life, she taught me that I was supposed to follow my dreams, whatever they may be. Don't let time just pass by and hope good things come, but actually make those good things happen myself.
