What are the challenges being a creative and woman of color in Los Angeles?

I actually believe that it is more advantageous to be a woman of color in the creative industry now more than ever. Everyone wants a piece of the streetwear aesthetic, which is all over the runway now. Being a WOC and growing up surrounded by culture gives an authenticity that you cannot buy.

What are your top 3 things to do in Los Angeles?

 1. Skate in Venice

2. Shop thrift and new, so many unique pieces all around the city

3. Hang out with my friends, meet new friends and explore.
