Since YBF focuses heavily on brands that give back, what is the charity closest to your heart?
I am very passionate about sustainability and companies that give back to the community around them. I love Simbi for those exact reasons. Simbi hires Haitians to make their bracelets and hair ties. Not only are they providing jobs that stimulates Haiti's economy, they also provide clean drinking water as well. It’s a really cool brand at YBF
If you could go anywhere in the world where would it be?
I really want to take a trip to Thailand! The culture there is so different from our own; I really think that it would expand my knowledge of the world around me, all while laying on a beach!
