Describe yourself in 3 words: Optimistic, Restless, Honest

What do you love about your life? So many things! I love that I’ve been able to travel around the world to meet so many people and experience unique cultures. Furthermore, I love coming home to the most beautiful city in the world and being surrounded by amazing friends and family.

How are you a member of the Tribe? I am currently the Marketing and Public Relations intern.

What do you love about the Tribe? I love how passionate and supportive the Tribe is!

What Tribe of Lambs product do you rock? None yet but hopefully lots soon!

How is Tribe of Lambs impacting you? TOL has made me much more aware of the ethical issues surrounding the fashion industry. I’ve always been interested in fashion so TOL has opened my eyes to a whole other side of the industry. Furthermore, TOL has brought to light the hardships that children affected by HIV/AIDS endure in India, which makes me want to do more to help those that need it most.

Favourite life experience thus far? Going on exchange to Australia for 5 months and having the opportunity to travel Southeast Asia while abroad.

What is your biggest dream in life? To leave the world a better place than I found it.
