This week we continue to explore what it means to be multi-passionate with the lovely and inspirational Amina Shafi. Amina is a creative that spends her works days as a Refugee and Asylum lawyer for Homeland Security and spends her free time as a poet, wedding officiate, and clean beauty consultant. We chat about what it’s like to work for homeland security, how she deals with the stress of her job, and how she uses her other passions as a creative outlet in order to live her most complete life.


What you’ll learn:

  • How Amina ended up in law as a creative
  • About her time working as an asylum officer in LA
  • How to deal with the pressures of an emotionally taxing job
  • How & why Amina got into the clean beauty scene
  • All about BeautyCounter and her role with the organization
  • How to balance multiple passions
  • The importance of aligning the choices you make with the goals that you’ve set
  • Her #1 tip when reviewing ingredients for product safety
  • The importance of taking time to discover who you truly are


Best Advice for Finding Happiness:

“Acknowledging the joy and beauty in the small things and to have gratitude for those small things. The gratitude you express may attract additional abundance.”
