My daily ritual includes …
An extra half hour of sleep after my alarm rings; kissing my daughter every other minute; preparing myself a yummy breakfast; working, working, working; delicious dinner, and a bath with my daughter.
I am grateful for...
Our health, my family’s and mine, and being able to travel and see the world.
I often take for granted...
I try not to take anything for granted. I thank life every day.
I wish more people could feel...
Empathy.
My favorite way to give includes …
Doing.
If I could walk in someone else’s path, it would have to be ...
Someone who dedicated their entire professional life to giving.
The easiest way to connect with others is..
Look them in the eyes and leave all technology behind.
The biggest misconception about fashion is...
That only narcissistic and snobby people work in the business.
When I think sustainability, I imagine …
A better world, less consumption and more joy.
My biggest truth is…
Not all that glitters is gold.
My biggest passion is...
Nature.
One cause I wish everyone knew about…
I think it’s very important to encourage education. I believe we should all be taught about our background and surroundings. We should learn how to survive in our own environment and make the best of what we have. We shouldn't teach kids that life is better if you have a computer and work in an office. That isn't the way for everyone.
My golden rule is...
“When things start to look blue, just sit back, breathe and look again. It all looks much better.”
