Today Culture Spoon celebrates International Coffee Day with a new “Coffee Talk” interview series. Each month, Culture Spoon will feature an individual who has pursued their passions in work and life, and how they’ve used that passion to better their local and global communities. In our first Coffee Talk, Culture Spoon sat with Rebecca Anne Ruiz, a powerful advocate for the Fair Trade Movement. Ruiz works as a Chief Storyteller for Ten Thousand Villages, is the co-founder of the Tender Heart Foundation, and recently traveled as a Fair Trade Ambassador to Oaxaca, Mexico. In this interview, Ruiz explains her passion for fair trade, and proves that great things can happen when you follow your passion.
