Because there are so many extremely amazing women in our HeyLink.me community, who inspire us every single day, we want to honour them and tell about their work in the verge of International Women’s Day!
Olga @olya_oleinikova has to be one of the most inspiring and energized women on this list. She’s a true multi-hyphenate: she’s a university lecturer, entrepreneur, mum, wife, product builder and mentor. And HeyLink.me Co-Founder:)
Olga is the face of VISA’s global female empowerment campaign. She holds numerous awards, including Forbes Top 40 Global Ukrainians, Forbes 30 Under 30 in Asia and Anthill hot young Australian entrepreneurs.
She started her professional career in Ukraine, where she worked for over five years in consumer research, driving consumer insights for big FMCG brands through TNS Global. Also, prior to becoming a startup founder (she is coming to Australia in 2012), Olga worked in social research projects across industry, government and non‑profit sectors.
Olga is driven by a desire to inspire people to make unconditional choices and do what they love without any barriers.
“Passion for innovation, female and economic empowerment is what motivates me to bring value to our small businesses and brands, as well as continue lecturing at university,” she says.
Katya @katyakomarovaofficial was one of the most in-demand models in Moscow, travelling to different countries all around the world (Katya was born and raised in Russia). During her travels around Thailand in 2010, she met a local artisan, who taught her how to make a leather bracelet. When she returned home to Russia, she toyed with the idea, crafting a number of leather bags. But only when a designer friend of hers used her bags in his runway during a fashion week that she realised this is what she wanted to do.
In 2013, Katya relocated to Australia for love. She launched her namesake label in 2014 presenting limited edition capsule collections. Today, the Katya Komarova brand is focussed on minimal, feminine, versatile leather goods of the utmost quality.
