Describe your style.
I live for comfort, but I love a creative outfit. I would call my personal style athleisure meets cutting edge with a dash of beads (and yes, beads over diamonds all day long).
What are you passionate about?
As an indigenous woman, I was raised with the inherent responsibility to care for the earth and to protect it. For every decision I make, I look back to the seven generations that came before me, and forward seven generations to those yet to come.
What does wearing fair trade clothing mean to you?
Wearing fair trade is wearing my ethics on my sleeve. Literally. I can trust when I see the Fair Trade Certified™ seal that the garment I am choosing has been thought about. It's a feel-good, change the world kind of decision, and it matters to me.
