Lana Li - Creator of Mythical Slyme
What are you working on now?
We are working on a spooky fun Halloween themed line for Mythical Slyme for this season. It includes mysterious and mythical creatures combined with amazing colors and glitters in the compounds, all appropriately themed.
What’s your workspace setup like?
I'm usually working on many things at the same time so I have a really big monitor which occupies most of my desk but keeps my productivity on point. I also have a mood board with all my projects – past, present, and future.
What is the most rewarding part of your job?
I love when young people approach me on social media or at live shows (I miss those!) to ask what has inspired me over the years, and some of the steps I took to become an entrepreneur, and ask for tips. Recently an 11-year-old girl from Costa Rica reached out to me with a proposal to expand Mythical Slyme to her country. I started young myself so I love to see that, inspire young adults and help them realize their dreams one day!
Where were you born?
I was born in China but moved to the US when I was 3 years old. My dad came to do his PHD here and we have been in the NY area since then.
Do you have any pets?
Yes, I have an 11-pound Dachshund called Derp.
What’s in your fridge?
Everything that can fit! I usually eat pretty healthy but sometimes I allow myself a cheat treat – onions rings and nachos are a few of my favorites!
What’s your beverage of choice?
Diet coke or soda water...ice cold, please!
