Kim is originally from the panhandle of Florida. Although the ocean was always a huge part of her life it wasn’t until she was older that she grew an appreciation for the ocean. The excitement of scuba diving seemed like a fun activity at first but little did Kim know that it would kickstart her journey that would change her life forever.
After attempting free diving for the first time the blue waters of Hawaii struck Kim’s eye and she knew exactly where her journey was going to lead her to next. With two bags and a skateboard in hand, Kim left what she knew behind.
Shortly after her move, she started to notice all the microplastics mixed in the sand, sealife wrapped in fishing line and nets, an abundance of trash floating in the water. She began to start diving with a knife to do what little she could. This small paradise in the middle of the Pacific stole her heart and she wanted to do everything in her power to protect it. Companies like Hülya give her hope that we will make a change. As ocean lovers/goers we always seem to accumulate an excessive amount of Bikinis. It brings her such pride to know she is wearing a brand that is sustainable, eco-friendly, and helps clean our oceans.
Kim usually doesn’t wear bikinis due to the lack of coverage and security while being active in the water. Hülya's fit is not only functional but very flattering. She is so honored to represent such a great company and be a Hulya woman!
