Share with us a little about yourself and your background.

I’m originally from Maryland, and I’m currently a Senior at Elon University. Growing up, I have always been a die-hard fan of shopping, keeping up with fashion trends, and trying to find the best deal possible. My goal is to gain experience in the world of communications and specifically tailor it to my passions.

What are you studying?

I am a Strategic Communications major with a minor in Professional Sales. Throughout my studies, I have developed strong communication skills and clearly conveyed points to different audiences. Studying Communications is very rewarding as I see my efforts directly affect people’s attitudes, beliefs, or behaviors.

We think you have such an amazing style. Tell us why you wanted to become a Luxury Shoe Club Ambassador?

I wanted to become a brand ambassador because I believe in the mission of the company. I have always been an outgoing, friendly, and inviting individual. Similarly, I have the ability to talk to people of all ages and backgrounds. As a brand ambassador, I have to put these attributes to the test in a unique way. Working with LSC will help me develop my attributes in a professional setting, as well as teach me the core principles of marketing in the sustainable fashion industry. LSC has chosen Elon University as its first location for a brand ambassador program, however, the program will expand to other Universities for students who have a passion for fashion, resale, and sustainability.

When did your shoe obsession start?

I vividly remember the moment I fell in love with a pair of shoes, which ultimately kick-started the entirety of my obsession. I was eight years old window shopping with my mom in Athens, Greece, and I saw a pair of sandals I had to have! After exiting the store, I had my shoes and a huge grin on my face. From that moment on, I have always loved shoes as a way to express my style.

How would you describe your style?

The best way to describe my personal style is: chic, elegant, and practical.

Which celebrity do you think has the best shoe closet?

I would have to say, Sarah Jessica Parker. Not only did she have the best shoe closet in Sex and the City, but also in real life.

What steps are you taking to become more eco-conscious and eliminating your carbon imprint?

The most difficult thing about trying to be more sustainable is knowing where to start and where to shop. For me, the process of being more informed about sustainable fashion was extremely daunting. However, I have learned to find so many brands that operate with an eco-conscious and sustainable focus in mind. I have started to invest in trans-seasonal clothing, rather than having a specific wardrobe for each season. I am excited to work with a company that is paving the way for the fashion industry to be more ethical and sustainable!

Which shoes on the Luxury Shoe Club App are a must-have this season?

Having a shoe obsession, I could wear them all…right now, I am currently loving Guiseppe Zanotti! Luxury Shoe Club has such an amazing selection of shoes, and I actually want them all!

What’s Your Perfect Shoe + Clothing Combo? Why?

My perfect shoe clothing combo would be an oversized blazer dress and a nude kitten heel or bootie. I also enjoy wearing a fun printed pair of pants and a simple white crop top, paired with my white platform Converse. Like I said earlier, my go-to style is very simplistic and classic! Whenever I wear a print, I like to tone it down with a neutral shoe. And when I wear a clothing piece more simply, I have a pop of color through my accessories.

Last Question… Shoe Goals: What shoes are you selling and which pairs do you think you will purchase first?

I will be selling a pair of Saint Laurent shoes and hope to buy a Giuseppe pair.
