TITA BUN COLLECTIVE
My name is Nicole Lorenzo(she/her). I am a Filipino-American born in Honolulu and raised in Honoka’a and Waimea of the Big Island of Hawai’i. The idea of Tita Bin Collective came to me during my Junior year at the University of Washington. At this point, I became reflective of the relationships I have created and the process that has helped me become comfortable with my identity. I wanted this Collective to be collaborative and highlight the members of my community that motivated me to become so comfortable in my own skin. Even though I’ve been living in the mainland and away from my family, Tita Energy runs through me. Mahalos to the family that I made throughout my journey, I look forward to growing with you all.
I chose to represent the brand with the Tita Bun because those are the women who are straight up badass, don’t take shit from anyone, and will have your back. As a collective, this is the energy that I hope I can bring to you, no matter where you are. Looking at the TBC logo, you can take the girl outta the island, but you can’t take the island outta the girl.
