BIRKENSTORY #21: Ramdane Touhami
“I was like the teachers were always saying: ‘He has a huge potential, but he does shit,” says Ramdane Touhami. He was banned from school, was kicked out by his parents, and became homeless. Today, he is the owner of the global beauty empire Officine Universelle Buly. We met this all-rounder in Paris.
BIRKENSTORY #20: Shalene McCollum
Like all the women in her family, Shalene McCollum has fishing in her blood – her grandma was a commercial fisherwoman, too. “That’s always in the back of your mind to be a good fisherman, to make sure that you are protecting the resource,” she emphasizes. We visited the keen wearer of Birkenstocks in her home town of Petersburg, Alaska.
