On Fashion Activism and Dialogue - A Conversation with Akim Tejan Cole

Welcome to season three of the podcast. Throughout this series, we will continue to shine a light on the changemakers who are having an incredible impact on the world whilst finding innovative ways to build a better future. In this first episode of the season, my guest is Akim Tejan Cole, founder of Maayee Fashion and advocate for fashion activism.

In this discussion Akim talks about his personal experience seeking asylum from Sierra Leone and facing a culture shock in Switzerland as he adjusted to his new life, and how that inspired him to create a way to bridge the gap between individuals from different backgrounds.Tune into his story here. 

Show Notes:

At the end of each show, I ask my guests for their top recommendations. Akim shared that he enjoys listening to 80’s rap music, particularly Biggie Small. Books that he absolutely recommends are Immortal Self by Aaravindha Himadra and Man's Search for Meaning by Viktor Frankl. And at the moment he is reading Paradise by Abdulrazak Gurnah.

To find out more about Maayee Fashion and the impact being made through this movement, be sure to check out their website and follow on Instagram and LinkdedIn. To connect with Akim, you can find him on LinkedIn
