"In this episode I speak to Avila Diana. Avila created her greeting card business in 2018 with the hopes of overcoming stereotypes and changing the world's perceptions on underrepresented communities. As a law student, Avila is a strong advocate for human rights and representation and firmly believes that positive change can only be brought about through actions and commitment. All of the designs are created by Avila and depict marginalised groups including those with disabilities, identifying as LGBT+, ethnic minorities or problems with mental health. We discuss the importance of standing up for what you believe in, how she got started and share tips on how to start a small business."
