Q: When did you first discover kombucha?
Back in 2017, I was looking for a different approach to improve my health. So a friend shared with me a piece of scoby and showed me how to make my own Kombucha. It started at my house, for me and my family. My boys (6 and 8 years old) loved it, so it became a natural part of our day, to drink Kombucha.
Q: Why did you start your own kombucha company?
People kept asking me what I was doing, because I was looking better, more energetic and overall people were noticing a big change in me. So I started sharing my Kombucha and telling all my friends all the benefits, and I wanted everyone to try it. I wanted to share this; it if was helping me so much, I wanted to share it with the world.
Q: What is your favorite flavor of kombucha?
Mango by GT’S
Q: What is your former/current other life or career?
I am a textile designer. It helped a lot at the beginning, since I designed all the labels, mark, names, etc… Now I am mainly focused on my Kombucha company, and I also have other organic products as well.
