Please share your name, pronouns, and a bit about yourself:
Hi my name is Rey, I use they/he/she pronouns and I'm a 2Spirit human.

What shows or movies are you binge-watching?
Currently bingewatching Raised by Wolves, Umbrella Academy and Aggretsuko!

What are you doing in your free/leisure time?
I like to workout, write in my journal, do some boxing and practice some regenerative yoga.

Do you have any daily/morning/evening rituals? If so, walk us through them?
My daily morning ritual starts with journaling, followed by doing my workout for that day at the gym, use a foam roller to really hit my tight muscles to prevent injuries. I then proceed to sit and close my eyes to meditate and relax in the sauna for 10-15 minutes before I shower and do my skincare routine where I cleanse, tone and moisturize which sets the tone for a good day. Self-care first before anything else!

What’s your favorite food/meal?
I'm addicted to chimichangas, they're so good and I love making them.

How do you use clothing & fashion to express and affirm who you are (or manage gender dysphoria)?
I wear things that make me feel good, which happens to be gender neutral wear. I'm very attached to floral patterns so you'll usually see me wearing denim jeans and a nice floral shirt or button up because flowers are gorgeous.

What’s one of your guilty pleasures?
Oreos. Just everything that has Oreos in it.

What do you do for self-care and self-love?
I like to unplug from social media on the weekends to unwind and decompress because the news can get overwhelming sometimes. I like to recharge by having serious alone time for myself and be one with my thoughts.

Tell us about a few things you are looking forward to in the coming months/year:

I'm really excited to dedicate more time to social media and advocacy work. So many new projects and blessings coming my way and I can't wait to share what it is with my community. It's the little things that keep me going.

Why did you decide to be part of the Community Collective?
I wanted to represent a brand that closely aligns with my values and showcase gender neutral underwear and clothing because we need more of that. Clothing has no gender, we should have the freedom to express ourselves however we choose and live our truth.
