My name is Cho Seward, I’m from Baltimore, Maryland.
In 2020 I started my own granola business along with my sister. Cho Granola was founded in an effort to create a low-sugar, vegan granola that was made with pure ingredients. I’m passionate about food that has the nutritional benefits to make you feel beautiful from the inside out.
As Baltimore natives and small business owners, my sister and I want to make a difference in the community in any way that we can. One in eight people in Maryland, and one in four in Baltimore City, are food insecure. So we got involved with an organization called Baltimore Hunger Project by volunteering and making donations. BHP is dedicated to eliminating the growing problem of childhood hunger by feeding bodies and minds. They work by consistently providing weekend food packages to children identified as food insecure, in a compassionate and dignified manner.
1. What is your idea of perfect happiness?
My idea of perfect happiness is simply being with my family. I’m lucky enough to have a very close relationship with my older brother and sister and with my parents. I find that any time that we are all together is when I’m the most content.
2. What is your greatest fear?
My greatest fear is being average. I’ve never been the type to follow the crowd, and always strive to stay true to myself and my personality. I have big dreams and goals for myself that I am constantly working towards, and won’t settle for less.
3. What is the trait you most deplore in yourself?
The trait that I dislike the most about myself is that I can be hopelessly indecisive. It will take me way too long to make a decision about even the simplest of things. I’ve definitely wasted a lot of time trying to make decisions.
4. What is the trait you most deplore in others?
I really dislike when a person is so full of themselves that they are unable to enjoy other people’s success or to see a situation from anyone else’s perspective but their own.
5. Which living person do you most admire?
The person that I most admire is my mom. As a Colombian woman who grew up with immigrant parents, sent herself to college, and became an amazing mom, I admire how she built the life she wanted for herself. She’s taught me everything I know and always inspires me to work hard and be a go-getter.
6. What is your greatest extravagance?
I think the thing I spend the most money on has to be food. I try live a healthy lifestyle and spending money on good ingredients, nutrition, and natural supplements to take care of myself is something that I don’t put a budget on. When I take care of my body through food and fitness I notice I have a glow that starts from the inside out.
7. What is your current state of mind?
I spend a lot of time journaling so I feel I’m constantly weighing the state of my mind. I would say that I’m positive, hopeful, grateful, and happy. I’m being appreciative of the moment that I’m in, while also manifesting what I want for the future. I’m in a place where I wake up everyday and strive to be as radiant I can be to those around me.
8. What do you consider the most overrated virtue?
I would say that patience is the most overrated virtue. At some point you have to say why wait for something when you can go and make it happen for yourself.
