Fairtrade Ambassador Eva Zelarayan

Eva Zelarayan considers herself a fighter for social justice and freedom for those who can't fight for themselves.

Eva was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York City. She received her Bachelors of Technology in Graphic Design back in 2014. Eva has been working as a graphic designer and production artist ever since. In the summer of 2011 she participated in a Christian volunteer program, The New York City Urban Project, whose mission is "to make disciples with the character and capacity to change the world." In that program Eva served alongside the homeless of the Inwood area in Manhattan through a soup kitchen and learned about many social justice issues in the U.S. and across the globe. For the first time she found out that there were children making our clothes and chocolate, underage girls being abused and trafficked, coffee farmers being exploited, families being torn; Eva's eyes were open to the evil of slavery linked to the U.S. and happening all over the world. She knew she had to make changes in her life and get involved immediately. Eva's shopping habits and money spending were shifted towards helping the cause rather than hurting it. She's been involved in this cause through prayer, donations, fair trade purchases, awareness and so much more. Eva Headshot
