About me / About business or organisation:
I am a graduate student at The New School in New York City earning a Masters of Science in Management and Urban Policy, focusing on sustainable management and corporate social responsibility. I am passionate about using business as a platform of change: challenging the status quo and incorporating the "triple bottom line" into work and academics.

My grandmother was a seamstress and a milliner her whole life and a union member in the original NYC Garment district, which has inspired me to work in fashion- not to mention that I admire beauty and art, which is what fashion stands for.

With the turbulent times that the world is facing- from water scarcity to poverty to climate change- sustainable business and cross-collaboration between sectors is a necessity. I wish to be apart of a positive movement in this ever-changing world that we live in.

My mantra: Change starts from within.

I love love traveling and experiencing different cultures, foods, styles, and music. Any opportunity I have to go abroad, I will be there!
Career history / Company history:

- Press Assistant at The FOUR Hundred in New York City. High-end contemporary sustainable fashion-design showroom. Worked alongside the Creative Director and Co-Founder, Bahar Shahpar.

- Product Development intern at DKNY, assisted the Director of Inspiration for Spring 09 collection.

Hello All,



I'm working on a Clothing Swap Challenge with Anvil Knitwear on CarbonRally.com for the 40th anniversary of Earth Day. It's a fun way to see how you can reduce yours CO2 footprint by swapping an item of clothing instead of buying something new.
