Tell us your name, age, where you’re from and describe yourself in one sentence. I’m Kezia, 19 years old and I’m from Berlin. I would describe myself as a really creative person who is very adventurous, open minded and loves to try new things.

Tell us your best joke! Living life.
What are your favorite sustainable brands? GmbH and nu-in.
What is your opinion on fast fashion? Working in the fashion industry and seeing that fast fashion is still one of the biggest industries with one of the biggest emission makes me sad. Seeing that workers can’t even afford basic needs and have to work under degrading and inhumane conditions is wrong for me. But most people nowadays don’t care about where their fashion is made. The only thing that counts for them, is that they have a lot of clothes as cheap as possible. No one can tell that their closet is 100% sustainable or second hand but I think we all should use the opportunity to buy as less fast fashion as possible. Furthermore the quality of fast fashion is mostly very bad. I think everyone should be aware of the consequences that get along with buying fast fashion for the environment. Thats why im a big fan of buying second hand.
What’s your favourite healthy snack/food? All kind of fruits (expecially watermelon) and sweet potato in all forms.
What comes to your mind when you hear the word individuality? Individuality for me is expressing yourself to the fullest without taking the opinions from others too serious. Trying new things, going your own path and being special in your own way. Do what makes you happy.
