An interview with Negin

You are a brand ambassador for PURELEI, what do you like the most about the company and their jewelry pieces?
The heritage of the brand is speaking to me because it got its inspiration from Hawaii and its nature. They stand for creativity and motivation with their fun aloha vibes.
The staple pieces of the brand are easy to mix and match with each other. You can complement each look with them!

What are currently your favorite PURELEI jewelry pieces?
I love the pieces from the Signature Collection from Purelei. They match so well together and with the outfits I'm wearing. I also use the Powder Necklace as a belly chain for when I am wearing a bikini. I attach two necklaces to each other to create a belly chain. It looks so cute!

Who or what inspires you the most at the moment?
I love the summer time so much. I spend a lot of time in my dad's bee garden with my family. We have done that since I was young and I still enjoy it so much. In the bee garden I learn more about the bees and beekeeping from my dad.

You are a very influential young woman for young girls all over the world, what is important for you in terms of being a role model?
What I find important about being a role model is that you have to be honest and transparent. Also connecting with everyone on Social Media channels such as Youtube brings me so much joy.

You are not only successful on Social Media, you also are a Bee-Keeper and founded your own brand Gisou! What was the driver for you to found your own label and what impact had this on your life?
It started pretty naturally. My mom is a hairdresser and my dad a beekeeper. So with the hair oil my mom created from my dad's honey, Gisou practically already existed but without the label. When I started on social media, the questions started about my hair and this transitioned in how we started Gisou eventually.

What advice would you give to all the young girls who would like to achieve their dreams?
To all the young girls and boys with their dreams I would say that if you have something you are passionate about or something you really love to do, just do it. You have to work hard and not everything will go how you want it to go, but it is all worth it in the end. Try to enjoy the ride and learn as much as possible. It is such an educational experience.
