Tell us your name, age, where you're from and describe yourself in one sentence. My Name is Ray, I’m 22 and living in Berlin currently. I’d say I’m a creative, open minded and nice individual, but lacking motivation a lot.
Who’s your role model? And why? I did have a role model, which was ASAP Rocky because he’s doing what he likes, fashion & music which he uses to express himself, but since I’ve grown older I understood it’s not about becoming as great as my role model, but about becoming a better version of myself day by day. He does inspire me still tho.
What’s the dumbest thing you believed in as a child? The dumbest thing I believed as a kid was thinking life’s going to be more fun as an adult.
What are your favourite sustainable brands? I don’t have a favorite sustainable brand since I’m mostly thrifting.
What is your opinion on fast fashion? As I grew older I understood what fast fashion actually was and I’m still trying to miss out on that since I’m not a supporter of the circumstances in which the clothes get produced.
What comes to your mind when you hear the word individuality? Individuality for me is admirable, i really admire anyone who stands out, not because they are trying to, but more because they just do stuff they like and express themselves without the fear if judgement.
Has social media given you more confidence in expressing yourself? Social Media actually gave me mixed feelings about expressing myself, since you lowkey compare yourself to anyone there. I needed to find peace with myself before posting on social media again.
What’s your favorite snack? My favorite healthy snack: fries, i mean basically they’re potatoes hahah.
