Speaker Bio:

Hello, I'm Laila! I founded Salvaged with a classmate when we realised the impact of clothing waste. Billions of clothes are being manually sorted in resale factories all over the world, and we wanted to explore ways to sort and list it for sale. In our final semester and a span of 3 months, we had finalized in the Sino 1 million competition and moved into our first warehouse to execute our ideas.
