Entrepreneur, Local expert, ProfessorHello I’m Mikaila
I speak: English
I am a Fashion Anthropologist, who ran my own fashion line for 4 years after obtaining a doctorate in Anthropology and Education from Columbia University. After running my own fashion line for four years, I started a company called The Common Thread Project (TCTP) that uniquely highlights cultural diversities within the fashion industry by investigating the style trends of local, underrepresented fashion communities. They share this knowledge with the public by creating original content AND by offering cultural shopping tours which we call Sidewalk Safaris. I am also a frequent instructor and facilitator of fashion, business, and diversity-related courses for both Cornell University and the City University of New York.
