Brave Spotlight, Sseko Fellows, Women of Sseko

Fellows Spotlight: Sarah Woodson (She earned herself a FREE trip to Uganda!)

There’s a community of women spread across the US that are changing the way women are empowered globally. By selling Sseko products and sharing the Sseko story, these women are earning an additional scholarship for the women on our team in Uganda! They’re called the Sseko Fellows, heard of them? One of our Sseko Fellows just hit Adventuress Status (that means she sold $10,000 worth of Sseko, in ONE month!) and she’s earned herself a trip to Uganda to meet the team!

Sarah Woodson is a 27 year old full-time Sseko Fellow (and newlywed!) who recently moved to St. Louis, Missouri with her hubby. Even before she was a Fellow, Sseko played a big role in her life- we’re talkin’ all her Bridesmaids were decked out in Ribbon Sandals y’all. She’s passionate about a range of social justice issues and has even spent time working for an anti-trafficking agency in the past!  This lady is busy killin’ it all day everyday, and we’re so happy she had some time to answer some of our questions. Read on to get to know Sarah and her work as a Sseko Fellow!

Tori Roloff | Buy Better Not More Vol. 1

Our Fall 2016 Collection is all about simplicity. It’s centered around buying better, not more. Each piece was carefully designed to be carried with you for years to come, and we incorporated timeless colors like caramel, blacks and ivories so that each piece may become a wardrobe staple. In the spirit of buying better, not more, we’ve reached out to our favorite fashionistas for tips on how to keep a simple wardrobe that feels new throughout the season. These beautiful women have joined our #buybetternotmore movement, and we are excited to share the first post in this series with you! First up, Tori Roloff – kindergarden teacher!

Brave Spotlight, Sseko Style, The Future is Bright

Brave Spotlight: Adriana Jaime

“I used to think being brave meant doing something big and cinematic and heroic, but after this trip, I realize sometimes taking those smaller steps that take us out of our comfort zone and help us grow can be just as brave.” -Adriana Jaime

Adriana is a Portland, Oregon dweller dedicating her time to working with kids and embracing her creativity through photography, writing, and being a hostess. Although she’s not originally from Portland, she tells us that the city feels more like home to her than any other place in the world. After a recent trip to NYC with friends, Adriana was curious what it might look like to move to a brand new city. Little did she know this would change her idea of what ‘being brave’ meant. We believe you will be inspired by the steps of bravery she took outside of her comfort zone so we asked her to share her journey with us.
