WHO IS HAYLEY? I wanted to create Yoke and Woke to make it easier for everyone to adopt a sustainable lifestyle.
With a Communications degree, I am a Technical Writer and Business Development Coordinator at engineering consultancy, Arup. I am proud to work at a company that uses sustainability and innovation to ‘shape a better world’.
Now doing a law degree, I believe that not enough people have an understanding of the rules that dictate their lives. My goal is to empower people through effectively communicating the legal and social justice issues that affect you. I love the feeling of taking a complex concept and transforming it through language into an idea someone can comprehend. I was a tutor for four years throughout uni, teaching children literacy and numeracy and teenagers English and Biology.
I lived in the UK and New Zealand for four years, which taught me that to spend money accumulating things is a liability. I learnt that seeing the world and making connections with people is what really matters – and how to get creative with ingredients!
I am happiest at the beach with my dog, doing yoga, travelling, being absorbed in a novel, and having laughing fits with Christopher before sleep. I look forward to speaking with you all and learning everything I can about the world of sustainability.
