I work with various organisations, corporate entities, community outreach projects and creating more awareness allows me to have a stronger impact, empowering others to take action when it comes to sustainability.

As an advocate, I wear many hats, and I’m involved in numerous roles such as: managing multiple community projects, brand consultation, sustainability marketing, and idea creation.

I primarily speak on zero waste, impact of fast fashion and ways to reduce plastic consumption. I work with many organisations to help spread the message across and adopt sustainable living habits. Below are some of the brands I’ve worked with to help amplify their cause and message.

I hope to see more companies follow suit in the race to help save this earth.
