#TBT: Iconic Moments in Beauty History 🌟 A GEENIE series giving flowers to the women and femmes whose beauty and talent sparkled and reigned supreme over time. In honor of Earth Day and to recognize how Gen-Z is stepping up for our Earth, we're featuring 18 year old environmental activist, Isra Hirsi ✨
The Moment: We're at ComplexCon 2019, held at Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center in Southern California. Tuning in to "How Gen Z Is Taking Control", @israhirsi is on the main stage sharing her story of stepping into environmentalism and becoming the activist she is today. Accompanied by Yara Shahidi, Storm Reid, and Thandiwe Abdullah, Isra dives into her journey which began during her freshman year of high school! She shares her mission to make a greater impact in (particularly indigenous) communities; to and to amplify marginalized voices. Isra wants to make the of issue and the conversation on climate-change more accessible and intersectional 🙌🏾 - that’s a message we can definitely get behind.
And what's a GEENIE post without getting into the lewk?! Isra's paired a white collared puff-sleeve dress with dark green Doc Martens - and we're loving the pops of color, courtesy of her lime statement earrings, hair-ties, and purple toned manicure.
We admire Isra’s compassion, drive, and the mark she's already made in environmental activism; she was named in Fortune's 40 Under 40 Government and Politics list last year! Let's give it up for Isra Hirsi by dropping flowers 💐 below.
