I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and currently live in Los Angeles, California. In San Francisco, I studied to become a registered nurse and moved to Los Angeles to take a job as an operating room nurse. About six months in, I realized this wasn't the career path I wanted to continue on and decided to venture into fashion, something I had always enjoyed since I was young.

As for slow fashion specifically, I was moved after watching the documentary, The True Cost. I felt that if I were to pursue fashion, it would have to be with a company that supports ethical and sustainable practices. I am now back in school studying fashion design and working with a sustainable company.
