We are so excited to have Youn Chang who is the Founder & CEO of OJOOK on our podcast! Throughout her career, she worked at GE, Sephora, Amazon, Apple & Glossier and got her MBA from Wharton. At Glossier, I had the opportunity to interview her for our blog where you can learn more about her incredible career path.
Most recently, she launched an oral hygiene brand called, OJOOK, which is taking oral hygiene from routine to ritual. OJOOK is the first oral care collection that nurtures self mastery and fosters longevity with Eastern wellness philosophy.
