What’s Your Legacy has been one of my favourite youtube channels for while now, the layout, innovative video ideas and the way of spreading awareness about sustainability and ethics in a way that is far from preachy or intimidating, in fact, I find Madara treats her channel and the way she speaks about ethical fashion with a normality that it should be spoken with, like a ‘normal’ fashion blogger or Youtuber would discuss their or others wardrobes. It’s incredibly refreshing and inspiring to watch and that’s why you can probably guess I emailed her to ask if I could ask her to be part of my #agenewageinspiration project.
When did What’s Your Legacy start? What inspired you to develop an ethical website and YouTube channel?
From reading the interview questions to writing this post and re-reading them, I keep thinking about what Madara has said, about the changing future of both fashion and sustainability as a whole, but also the way one can do good and also benefit from it, because I agree that there is a misconception of creating a business that does good in the world but also earning money from it. I also really want to read Antifragile because it sounds so insightful and I am always on the hunt to broaden my knowledge of topics that I’m perhaps not as informed as I would want to be in.
Her comment about showing how women can be strong leaders really touched a cord, as someone who inspires to work in the UN (or an organisation similar) one day, reading that answer really inspired me. It’s such a simple thing but from an online influencer who shares everyday about new brands that are paving the way to a better fashion industry; who posts videos about other empowering women who take a stand for what they believe in – Madara embodies the positive power that can be spread online. I hope, if you take anything from reading the interview, that you can be a strong leader, and I too hope that I can have a legacy as great as Madara’s.
lots of love, eleanor xx
