Kestrel Jenkins

 

Whether the driving force was language or fashion, Kestrel's interest in global issues has led her around the world. She worked as a journalist with El Diario Austral in Chile, did PR for People Tree in London, and taught English to elementary students in Madrid, Spain. She found all of her interests collide in fair-trade fashion, where her energy and spirit inspire a thirst to understand more and more about the field.

She has a B.A. from Hamline University in global studies, international journalism, and Spanish. She currently works as a PR & Research Associate for Global Action Through Fashion.

In honor of her pledge to only be ethical in her clothing purchases for 365 days, she posts weekly "looks" on her blog, Make Fashion Fair.
