Fun fact about Mya: I am an avid thrifter all my life – my mom introduced me to it when I could first walk and talk, and over time I grew up to love the thrill of the hunt for unique items. Over 95% of my clothes and items are thrifted, and it’s a hobby that’s complimented my journey towards a more environmentally sustainable lifestyle.
