  • Dear Kerlyi:

    I am impressed by your post, “The Biggest Change of My Life,” because it is impressive how calm you sound to be moving to a different country. I think it’s impressive that you are going to slowly adapt to a new atmosphere.

    • Hello Araceli

      I appreciate the insight you give in your post, “Fast Fashion,” because it is true that people in different countries are suffering due to poor labor in these sweatshops. Since the pandemic, I have seen a rise in interest in shopping “hauls” and how several online shopping businesses are feeding these trends to us.

      When you mentioned, “Of course, this is only allowed in certain places of the world but buying from these companies is like showing support, and ignoring the fact that literal children are making these clothes,” I couldn’t agree more. Although it sounds horrible, it is true that we as consumers hold responsibility for not making these fashion companies accountable for how they are treating people.

      Thank you for this interesting post. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I can tell you are willing to discuss difficult topics, even if it may not seem that way. Continue to ask questions!
