Your girl for @office_london 👟✨💋

A post shared by Zoya Pon (@thatasiangirlza) on

You in 3 words: Up to something.

Weird/fun fact: I swear a lot.

What wakes you up: 1 alarm after approximately 3 snoozes. I love sleeping.

Your perfect day: Would be longer, and start with coffee, writing up inspiring pitches, publishing a piece on Apeiron., submitting a piece for a publication, a photoshoot, the beach, dinner with friends and drinks. Alas I’m only one person and there are only 24 hours in a day. I’m grateful af to do what I love for a living.

Cause you are most passionate about: Race issues and politics. As a biracial person, I have always been interested, passionate about, and especially aware of race issues. My interest in social issues in general is what inspired the inception of Apeiron.

ANNETTE KEMP

Apeiron. social media intern.

5 quick questions

You in 3 words: Buccaneer, seer, poet.

Weird/fun fact: My hips are double jointed.

What wakes you up: Experiences that make me go all poetic! Anything I can get romantic or emotional about and spend some time thinking about dreamily.

Your perfect day: Includes great hair, wine and a good book.

Cause you are most passionate about: Giving women a voice and abolishing traditional restrictive gender roles.

JENNA DREISENSTOCK

Apeiron. editorial intern.

You in 3 words: “So It Goes”

Weird/fun fact:  When I was a kid, I spent hours drawing comics and silly narratives. From mystical forests, to an underwater mermaid metropolis, the inside of a fridge and a bouncy house – I glued together drawings until I had a massive roll-up of drawings that spanned an entire room when spread out.

What wakes you up: My cat screaming at me for her breakfast.

Cause you are most passionate about: I’m extremely passionate about all causes related to human and animal rights. I’m totally “that guy” at parties. Justice for all.

Pet peeve: It’s so hard to just name one…does that make me cynical?
