In 1988, the Foong family left their home country of Malaysia and migrated to Australia, hoping to offer a life full of opportunities to their daughters—Angela, Juliana, and Roweena. To the initial disappointment of their parents, the sisters pursued careers as seamstresses. They launched what is now a successful clothing business, High Tea With Mrs Woo. While it took a few years to gain parental support for their business, they continue to feel an obligation and respect toward their parents for working hard to give them this freedom.
