Episode 13 : Sandy Zhao Ran Ji

IMG_0805.jpg
There is no right or wrong way of being a woman. Whatever makes you feel good, whatever makes you feel powerful and happy just keep going at it. The more you find joy and the more you push yourself to do those things the more you’ll find your frequency vibrating stronger and the more those types of people will come into your life.
— Sandy Zhao-Ran Ji

Sandy is energetic and exciting, just like the plant-based biodegradable glitter brand she’s created, EarthShine Glitter.  She’s also your modern American success story. Born in China, she and her parents immigrated first to Canada, then to Palo Alto, California.  Always creative and resourceful up-cycling the hand-me-downs she was given growing up, at an early age she became interested in the fashion industry. After working at LA fashion labels such as BCBG and Forever 21, she continues to mix product merchandising and e-commerce to bring brands into the modern era.  When her passions for environmentalism and fashion came in conflict, she knew she had to find a way for them both to exist. This is her story
