Today we’d like to introduce you to Marielle Ngoue.
Marielle , can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I was born in France and moved to Cameroon shortly after. My maternal grandmother in Cameroon inspires me. Deborah Ngoue, a widow with 10 children, without completing high school, created a prestigious and excellent school that continues to give, educate, a living legacy.
My paternal grandfather Ruben Um Nyobe was an anti-colonialist Cameroonian leader killed by the French army. He was a lover of liberty who provided a path for people to be free, prosperous and independent. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ruben_Um_Nyobé)
Without even realizing , I find their passions blended into my intrigues that shape LVNGLARGE.com.
I had the opportunity to come to the States at the age of 14, leaving my family behind to make a new path. God saw fit to allow me to do well in school and graduate magna cum laude at SMU.
I was later accepted in UTSW medical school, all that to find out that my citizenship paperwork was not in order, my enrollment rescinded. I have used my time to focus on Forest Grove Medical Mission (organic farm & apothecary). Through this, I have learned so much including a new perspective on medicine, and now I am reapplying to medical school, feeling better prepared and loving LVNG LARGE.
Has it been a smooth road?
Often the biggest challenge is to get started. My really good friend Francois actually encouraged me to start blogging. He started his blog Hello Francois (http://www.hellofrancois.com) as a way to promote his favorite places in Dallas, and is now rated #1 men’s fashion blogger. To watch him flourish through his passion for travel, lifestyle and fashion has been inspirational.
My first big challenge was designing my website on a budget. I was looking for a clean minimalist look, a neutral platform for thought provoking discussions as well as an inviting place where my readers would escape and unwind. “(Let the Peacerobbers be gone)”.
Unbeknownst to me website designing is challenging, in particular when I accidentally deleted my entire website the day before its official launch. The whole next day was spent re-building my blog platform from scratch. Reflecting back, what makes LVNG LARGE so special to me and others, is its constant re-upping, re-branding, re-thinking, re-evaluating what truly brings value to life.
We’d love to hear more about your business.

Let’s touch on your thoughts about our city.
The history of Dallas since its inception seemingly has been an ideal place for entrepreneurs. In some aspects, it just keeps getting better.
We do have a healthy blogging community. When it translates to actual physical business, there is good and bad. Red tape bureaucratic city hall with its backward archaic zoning rules allowing street signs, telephone poles and other obstructions placed in the middle of sidewalks, while poo-pooing common sense mixed zoning walkable communities good for business. Often what is accepted are buildings that look like they need to be torn down shortly after being built and more isolated fenced-in prison-like apartment complexes. Time to build that which stands the tests of time. I have no real opinion on the matter. 🙂
