Recently, I drove to Mexico to visit some family along the border. My physical features allow me to blend into the world around me easily since Mexicans come in all different size, shapes, and colors; and for this, I am thankful. ย No matter where I am in the world, I can usually blend in pretty well with the surround culture (unless I’m in Germany!) ย I said my hellos and stuffed my face with as much carne asada as I could, but one thing was on my mind the whole time: privilege. ย Just by being born a bit north of a random line drawn up in North America gave me 1000 more opportunities than my family in Mexico. ย And I had nothing to do with it. I didn’t earn it, I didn’t apply for it, I didn’t do anything at all. I was born lucky, and chances are, so were you.

That’s why I’m so in love with Sseko Designs. Sseko Designs is a fashion brand based in Uganda that employs young, talented women to produce the collection. ย Sseko Designs provides the opportunity for women to end their own cycle of poverty for a more stable and harmonious environment and that’s definitely something I can get behind. ย I’m wearing the T-Strap Sandals in Espresso with the gold fringe accessoryย (which can even be swapped out!). While I was shooting at Salvation Mountain, it was 120 degrees in the middleย of August and the shoes were able to hold up against the heat. I definitely recommend them to anyone who’s interested in looking good while doing good.
