"Who made my clothes?" It's such a simple question, but the answer has major implications for people around the world. What an honor it is to be able to know the names and faces of the people that make our clothes. I'm beyond thrilled to introduce you to Beatrice! Beatrice works for a brand called Ubuntu Made and has an amazing outlook on life despite overcoming great personal tragedy.

I am a wife and a mother of 3 beautiful daughters. I lost a 3 year old daughter to meningitis in 2012.
