“In the last year, so many women have inspired me, but if I have to pick one I would say it was my sister, Michaela. She’s a Fashion Design student at the Rhode Island School of Design now (the models are wearing her pieces) and will graduate this summer. She inspires me because she reminds me that every creation must have an intention and is an opportunity to elicit discussion; that there is potential to change perceptions and when successful, a piece of art can breed empathy. I think this roadmap she has created and followed is something that should apply to everything that we do.” – Aarika Lee, co-founder of digital marketing and branding agency Elementary Co.
