Los Angeles, CA, June 05, 2021 --( Scientology Network added to its growing collection of awards a Gold Telly win for an episode of the documentary series Meet a Scientologist, featuring world-renowned shoe designer Chie Mihara. Telly Awards are widely acknowledged as the premier award honoring excellence in video and television across all screens.

Sold in high-end boutiques and luxury department stores, Chie grew her company into one of the world’s most recognized brands in women’s footwear. In the episode, she reveals how the tools of Scientology helped her achieve her extraordinary success:

“Through Scientology, I gained so much confidence in myself and got so much truth and understanding about life. I apply that in everything.”
