Vavavida and How Jewelry Can Change The World

Vavavida and How Jewelry Can Change The World

| February 20, 2015 | 0 Comments




Vavavida is a line of ethically made fashion jewelry items that give back. We only retail ethically made pieces of gorgeous high-quality hand crafted artisan jewelry from all over the world. But we don’t stop there because 10% of our revenues goes to non-profit organizations such as Project Concern International where our investments go to help empower women around the globe. When you empower a woman, you empower a community.

Vavavida was founded after a long conversation between Antoine and Dan –two of the co-founders– seeing eye-to-eye about things that could be done in the world to enrich people’s lives. Vavavida was created to help prevent events like the tragic collapse of the Rana Plaza sweatshop from happening again. If Vavavida can be part of the conversation in proving that healthy profits don’t have to come at the expense of the mistreating of other human beings, we will have won our “Fair Fashion Coup.”

Meet Lauren Gaggioli,  Higher Scores Test Prep

Meet Lauren Gaggioli, Higher Scores Test Prep




Today my guest is Lauren Gaggioli, Higher Scores Test Prep. After graduating from New York University with her B.F.A. in Theater, Lauren moved to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career in Los Angeles. To make time for auditions during the day, she called upon her nerdy roots from her high school days and began tutoring the SAT and ACT. She quickly fell in love – not with the exams, but with the feeling that she was helping students put their feet on a firm path towards a big, bright future.

After 7 years working as an in-home tutor with a large test prep firm and then in her own independent tutoring company, Lauren distilled her experiences into the personalized SAT prep course that is now available through Higher Scores Test Prep. Lauren’s love of teaching and compassion for what students are facing in today’s complex, competitive college admissions landscape allows her to bring a little bit of calm to her corner of the college admissions process.
