I am a New York based freelance writer and social entrepreneur working to provide a platform in the global fashion market for developing artisans in rural Uganda. I’m convinced that generating sustainable income is better than a quick fix. I believe women are the future of change in Africa, and that women with businesses change the local political environment for the better. Passions: yoga, snobby coffee, dark beer, feminism, LGBT rights, international development. Lover of people. Committed to cultural awareness, autonomy, dignity.
I have a particular weakness for extra strong Porter, fur jackets and crunchy sushi rolls.
