- Tell us your name, your age, and where are you from?
My name is Sheena Kuhn. I’m eighteen years old, and I live in New York City.
- What do you like to do?
I’m definitely a bit of a nerd. I love learning- especially English and History. Still, I sing and play guitar. Also, I’m really into yoga and fitness.
- Which Wakami story you feel the most identified with?
Marla’s story was especially inspiring to me. She uses Wakami as a way to fulfill her dreams. Whether it’s improving her house or helping her children achieve their dreams, Marla’s story shows that Wakami is tied to something bigger than itself. I truly identify with this in that I have many dreams, big and small, but they are all tied to an overarching sense of optimism and self-liberation. So, like Marla, I dream big, but I also see how all of my hopes are connected to my current actions.
- What is your biggest dream?
My biggest dream is to ensure that all minorities feel like they have the education they need to speak up and engage in the happenings of our world.
- What are you doing today to make that dream a reality?
I have founded the LGBT+ sexual education brand US (Unconventional Sex-ed) in order to grant people of all sexualities the information to lead healthy sex lives. I am also the Mogul President of Laurel Springs School, meaning I run my school’s Mogul social media platform, which is centered on giving women a space to voice their opinions, passions, and dreams.
- Why did you become a dream chaser?
I became a Dream Chaser because Wakami’s mission really resonated with me. Women’s empowerment is something I’m passionate about, and I’ll help in any way I can. Plus, I love seeing minorities rise up, so it is incredibly inspiring to see Wakami producers succeed.
- What would you say to a Wakami producer?
You are doing an incredible job, and you inspire me everyday. Empowered women empower women, and you are a true testament to this. Keep on fighting the good fight; slowly but surely, Wakami is changing the world.
- What does Purpose, Prosperity and hope means to you?
To me, purpose, prosperity, and hope represent motivated optimism. Wakami producers have hope, yes, but they actively tap into that hope to create the future they want to see. So, I see the message as one of empowerment. Hope supports purpose supports prosperity, and Wakami prosperity is financial, intellectual, and soulful.
