Future, opportunity and responsibility
“Sustainability can and should be applied to several areas, especially fashion”
This Petit Pli portrait blog has been beamed to us from Madrid, Spain, as it features Alicia, one of Petit Pli’s first team members. Alicia is due to take on the world as a new graduate in June 2021 and we can’t wait to see what the future holds for her! For now, however, this little peek into her inspiring mind will do. Read on to find out more!
1. What do you do?
I’m an international relations & communications student living in Madrid! I am passionate about entertainment, cinema, fashion and music. Professionally I’m just a student, but I like to think of myself as a creative explorer and Internet adventurer.
2. What is an average day like?
I keep up with my University work, make sure to do some exercise to keep a healthy mind, and enjoy a bit of reading and a film or two…
I am very lucky that my city’s restrictions are not as strict as others, so I like to meet my friends to grab a drink at a terrace at some point in the day now that the days are longer.
3. What has been a window of joy for you during the pandemic?
My podcast, Podcast SIN FAVOR. It’s my little side project that I started during the very long lockdown in March. It’s my very own space where I can talk about everything I want to. It’s freeing and even therapeutic.
4. What does sustainability mean to you?
Future, opportunity and responsibility. Ever since I worked at Petit Pli, my awareness and attention towards the environment increased. I learned that sustainability can and should be applied to several areas, especially fashion, if we want to take care of our planet and the future generations.
5. If you could go back in time to speak to your LittleHuman self what would you say?
Alicia, hold on tight, the world’s about to go crazy. There’s going to be this thing called Bitcoin, use less plastic and stay strong. Math exams will be over soon!
We are grateful for Alicia and our community of TallHuman supporters in Madrid and we encourage you to have a listen to her podcast SIN FAVOR to hear more from the inspiring Alicia!
