Thank you, Thank you, Thank you so much for being here!
Through the years I have realized that September is a very special month for me, full of beautiful moments and milestones. September seems to be the month where things come Around, full circle. It is the month when I became an aunt to the most gorgeous girl, the month when I moved from Puerto Rico for the first time to study in California, the month when I quit my job to pursue an MBA in Barcelona, and it was in September when I packed my bags and moved to New York City 5 years ago!
After months of hard work, it is in this lucky September that I became a small business owner in New York with my new brand Around. I am beyond excited and happy to share my work, my passion and see my vision come to life. It is truly a dream come true!
Around stands for ethical fashion, social and environmental responsibility. Our line of t-shirts are made of organic cotton + recycled plastic bottles, they are also Fair Trade Certified supporting farmers, factory workers, empowering women and investing in communities.
I'm grateful to be able to help and support many people with this project.
I believe that all of us have the power to change the world and create a positive impact in other people's lives. In these times of such much negativity, we can plant a seed of hope, love, and care for each other and our planet. We can always do better, we can always do good!
Lastly but most importantly, I want to thank my amazing family, and friends for their support and being the best cheerleaders!
Love you all,
