Having founded a company I wholeheartedly believe in, my personal and professional mission is to build an engaged community of support. Pepper Your Talk is a phy-gital platform for young fashion creatives. Why phy-gital? Because through PYT, I aim to create as many physical experiences offline and in real life, as we do online through your computer screens, tablets and mobile devices. My work with young people in a leadership capacity started at the age of 14, followed by obtaining the fashion course representative role during my time in college, an Art and Design foundation degree and University. At Pepper Your Talk we’re obsessed with people! My entire service is based around delivering critical information needed to navigate the fashion career crossroads. We’re open, honest and genuinely passionate about building futures.Locked Pro Plan feature
