Meet the Team

Jessica — Retail Assistant

 

Introducing the third edition of our Meet the Team series, featuring the kind, hardworking and committed staff members of Kuwaii.

This month, we are featuring our Virtual Shopgirl Jessica! You may have seen her trying on our favourite Halcyon pieces on our Instagram @kuwaii, or even been served by her in store.

Read about the lovely Jessica below, our visit her in our Brunswick store here.

How long have you worked at Kuwaii, and what is your role?
About 1.5 years as a Casual Retail Sales Assistant! You’ll find me mainly at the Brunswick store 🙂

What’s your favourite piece from the Halcyon Collection?
Oh gosh hard choice! I’m going to nominate 2 favourites; I am loving wearing my Halo Sweater in Ginger, then followed closely by the Vega Pant in Pinstripe, when I see how people adore them in store!

What’s your favourite memory with the Kuwaii team?
I’m proudest of our team’s community and charity work. Our fundraising initiatives for the recent bushfires, recycling and carbon offsetting efforts and participation in recent strikes have all been highlights. Our staff parties are always full of warmth and giggles too.

How do you like to spend your time outside work?
Working on completing my masters degree mainly, with plenty of time with loved ones in the mix.

Who or what inspires you?
My incredible strong, creative and beautiful friends inspire me. As well as my Baba (Grandmother) and Dida (Grandfather) – I do everything I can to let them know I am grateful for the sacrifices they have made for us and the love that they give.

Tell us one, a book/tv show/recipe/album you’re loving at the moment?
I recently re-watched In My Blood It Runs, 2019 (directed by Maya Newell). It’s a beautiful film following the life of a boy Dujuan Hoosan and his connection to land and spirit in Alice Springs. I highly recommend it. 12yo Dujuan, with his “stop putting kids in jail” speech, is the youngest person ever to have addressed the United Nations on lifting the legal criminal responsibility age of children. It highlights how our education system fails our First Nation’s kids.
