Ophelia Chong, Stock Pot Images, Does it All

 

Ophelia Chong, Program Chair for the DMLA 2017 Conference and Founder and CEO of Stock Pot Images is one those people who never stops.  She was recently featured in two articles about her business and one of her outreach projects.

“Today, the story of StockPot Images is rooted in many lives, and many realities, but it all began with Ophelia’s sister, who copes with an incurable disease.  She came to visit Ophelia and tried cannabis to help alleviate her symptoms.  Ophelia realized that this plant could help her promote her healing, health, and well being.  “How does the media portray people like my sister?”  The answer was with old stereotypes of potheads and such. This laid the groundwork for her mission: to advocate for the legalization of cannabis and offer truthful reflections of the faces and communities that embrace cannabis. ”

Congratulations Ophelia!  You bring great energy to DMLA!
