It’s not often you come across an individual with such passionand zeal for what she does; Saadiya Ahmad speaks with Jessica Michelle Kahawaty, an international model, lawyer, and very active philanthropist about how she leverages her influence to help others.

ON SOCIAL MEDIA


“Social media is the most powerful tool we have in our hands that breaks down every barrier known and allows us to amplify and spread a message instantaneously. I always aim to use my influence positively through social activism, shedding light on topics that may be overlooked, and promoting a healthy, positive, and realistic image to everyone who follows me.”

THE IMPORTANCE OF PHILANTHROPY

“I have been doing charity work quietly since I was 17 years old. It’s something I’m passionate about and I can’t imagine my life without that fundamental purpose – serving others and using my platform to do so. It’s so important because as a human being, my responsibility is to the underdog and the silenced ones. I want to leave a positive imprint in this world and altruism is of paramount importance to achieve that.”

SUKIN SKINCARE BRAND AMBASSADOR

“I’ve been using Sukin for a couple of years and it’s a brand I swear by. Their masks and scrubs are incomparable. I also love their mantra of being kind to your skin and the earth.”

STAYING ON TRACK

“I surround myself with a very strong support system of friends and family. I attribute my sanity to them in an industry that can easily drive you insane because of the work hours, travel times,
and work pressure. I also love Pilates and boxing which I picked up in New York again not long ago.”

THE POWER OF SOCIAL MEDIA

“It’s accessible to everyone so a social responsibility resides in everyone to present a realistic and positive image. I love that barriers are broken down and also the support I receive from it on a daily basis is incredible.”
