What’s your dream job?
Ah, so many things! I adore my job now—I love love love Belle The Label, it is a creative outlet for me incorporating all my passions of photography, film, design, art. I have a lot of interests though.
A topic in particular I want to get more involved with is sustainability & environmental conservation. Currently, I am working on making Belle The Label a sustainable & ethical company, which will be really fulfilling because the fashion industry can be very hard on the environment. Sustainability wise, I think it’d be exciting to find a way to help people grow their own food & bring awareness to the corrupt food system. Also as a surfer and sea lover, I aspire to get involved and learn more about ocean conservation efforts. A major dream of mine is having a huge, abundant, flower farm. I am learning about growing cut flowers this year and I am going to try and execute it on a small scale level.
I want traveling, surfing, and learning about different cultures to be involved in whatever I do as well, or just part of my life forever. These are just my dreams right now though. I am currently studying film & sustainability, so we will see where that takes me.

What is the purpose of life?
Everyone has a different path, but I think it is important to connect with yourself, finding empowerment, happiness, love, and sharing that vital insight with people. Making sure to take care of others, yourself, and the environment. Constantly learning and filling your life with knowledge that inspires you to do something positive. Be gentle to the earth and to others.

First thing you notice about another person?
Body language for sure. I pick up on people’s vibe immediately that way. It says a lot about who someone is.

Best advice you’ve ever been given?
This isn’t the BEST advice I have ever been given, but a mantra I have been exploring lately that I recommend people to try!
“Oh well”
It’s kind of silly, but I think it’s whats helped me become so easy-going about most situations. I used to be a worry-wort kid and my mom would always tell me to say “oh well” meaning go with the flow, be present, and enjoy whatever comes your way. No expectations, you don’t always have control over everything. Anytime I get into a stressful situation that I am bummed on- I say it to myself and it calms me down...life’s good.
