Beyond the bargain. What is fair trade fashion
Everyone knows about fair trade bananas, but what about clothes? What is fair trade fashion and why does it matter to look good while having a positive impact on people and nature?
I have lived, worked and made a positive change in eight countries including Honduras, India, South Africa, and the DRC. Through my experiences abroad, working on several different types of projects, I have gained significant insight into the world of international development. Some of the projects I have worked on involve capacity building, youth in development, and women's empowerment. I received my bachelors from University of California, Santa Barbara and recently obtained my masters from the University of Cambridge in Development Studies. My goal is to bring a more sustainable and constructive approach into the field of international development through my expertise in development theory alongside with my practical experience. More specifically, I plan on having a positive impact in the areas of poverty alleviation, community cohesion, women’s empowerment, and sustainable livelihoods.
