" Figuring how to channel my left brain along the lines of sustainable creation has been the 'Youreka' moment I've been waiting for! Joining the Class of 2021, I am excited to learn from this community of passionate folks and share with them my thoughts & ideas. I am extremely driven in my work at Flipitt- a reworked apparel brand I founded last year, which truly symbolises 'small but meaningful impact'. Hoping to gain new perspectives & challenge some beliefs through this experience! "
