Name: Samantha Haigood 

Where You’re From: The San Francisco Bay Area

Where You Call Home Today: The San Francisco Bay Area

How do you practice sustainability in your everyday life?

I try to purchase from small, locally-owned businesses in Providence, Berkeley, or San Francisco. I especially love the farmer’s market!

What excites you most about your career?

It's exciting to see how sourcing within the fashion industry, alongside others, is changing to be more transparent and sustainable. These changes are also aligned with general shifts that organizations are making towards supporting the Sustainable Development Goals. In my work at TTM, I enjoy collaborating with people from different backgrounds, and thinking about how to best support our makers in their work.

Who is your biggest inspiration and why? 

One would probably be Michelle Obama! I read her book Becoming a few years ago. As a woman of color, I find the way she has practiced authenticity in different aspects of her life inspiring. I feel like everyday I try to practice being the person who I want to become in small ways.
