“It’s ok to be figuring stuff out. It’s ok to be a bit awkward. It’s ok to not know what you’re doing” - Kristabel Plummer
This month's podcast guest is Kristabel Plummer, the writer and creator behind the fashion, travel & lifestyle blog iwantyoutoknow. Kristabel studied Fashion and Knitwear Design, and began sharing online as spaces and communities around her interests grew. With the realisation that she wasn’t seeing others who looked like herself on these platforms, Kristabel wanted to provide something else. Kristabel's interview is a triumphant cry that there is space for everyone and getting your personality out there is absolutely possible. She's humble and keen to show she makes mistakes while acknowledging her successes that she has built and created.
Writing about her life online has clearly helped Kristabel process and refine her ideas which is why so much of her content is well considered and beautifully presented- she doesn't rush. in the second half of this interview especially, you will hear about Kristabel's passion and commitment to diversity and potential for conflict when engaging with brands that don’t represent the same values. She has a long view of how to make things better for everyone and she's navigating her way and taking us along for the ride. Read her post,
