This week, Kristin is speaking with Mona Maine de Biran. Mona started her adventure at 16 as a model, travelling the world and winning the Grand Prize on one of America’s biggest talent competitions of the 80s and 90s, https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-news/losing-to-win-remembering-the-real-stars-of-star-search-117560/ (Star Search). But when she started to “age out” of modelling, Mona was determined to start again and is now challenging the rules as CEO and co-founder of sustainable, ethical fragrance brand https://kierin-nyc.com (Kierin NYC). In addition, Mona is the blogger behind https://manhattan-minds.com (Manhattan Minds)- REAL NEW YORK CITY STORIES, for lovers of art, beauty, fashion and urban lifestyle.
