What is your life’s aspiration?
It’s pretty simple - I just want to be happy. I’m an overthinker, which can sometimes make life more complicated than it has to be. So simple things like “be happy” are often easier said than done, but overall I want to be content with the choices I am making and how I am living my life. And as long as I am able to stick to that, I believe my heart will be happy.
If you could change one thing about the world, what would it be?
I want people to be more open-minded - and I include myself in that. As a species, we tend to get so stuck on what we know and what we feel comfortable with, that we close ourselves from other opinions and points of view. I think it’s really important to change that to be able to make impactful changes in the world. Each and every opinion matters, and I wish we could all step out of our comfort zone and take the time to listen to what other people have to say. Even if you don’t agree, you should try to be understanding of things that are different from what you know.
Which community do you want to raise up?
I want to get better at raising up communities in general but at the moment I’m focusing on trying to educate myself more around the Black Lives Matter movement. I’ve always been aware of what was happening, but I’m making more of an effort to be conscious, listen to podcasts, read stories, and be more aware of the language that I use. I’m trying to start conversations with family and friends and create more awareness around the issue. It’s a small step - but hopefully, it’s a step in the right direction.
What is your most memorable SOUNDBOKS moment?
I’ve had some really great experiences and the team is just so open and inspiring, but there is definitely one moment that stands out. On the second day of my internship, there was an event with SOUNDBOKS and YesTheory which focused around trying out new things - stepping out of your comfort zone. And one of those things was going bungee jumping. So yeah - I super casually went bungee jumping on my second day at SOUNDBOKS. That pretty much says it all.

She knows everything there is to know, and then some, about our products. Questions? She’s your gal. A lover of all things ocean, Aileen spends as much time as she possibly can paddling, surfing, or swimming her way through salty waters. If it was up to her, our office would be on a giant raft in the middle of the ocean. One can always dream, right?
