About Me

Hello and welcome to my world. I'm Iye Bako,  my work centres around compassion and change, I weave together my passions for veganism, social justice, beauty, and wellness. Born in Nigeria and now residing in the United States, my journey is a tapestry of diverse experiences, each shaping who I am today.

My Education and Roots

My academic path led me to The Ohio State University, where I pursued International Business and Spanish. This rich educational background set the foundation for my multifaceted career, intertwining various aspects of my identity and interests.

Veganism: A Holistic Approach

For over four years, I've been a committed vegan. This journey started as a personal quest to align my mind, body, and morals. Learning about environmental justice and the pressing issue of climate change deeply influenced my decision. Veganism, for me, is more than a diet; it's a holistic approach to living. It's about compassion, spiritual alignment, and inner peace.

Fighting for Total Liberation

My advocacy extends beyond veganism. As a co-founder of Vegans Against All Oppression (VAAO) and an advisory board member of Plant the Power 614, I am deeply involved in promoting a caring, plant-based community. My work is a testament to my belief in total liberation for both humans and non-human animals.

A Personal Journey through Beauty and Wellness

Beauty and wellness hold a special place in my heart. Having navigated through my own skincare challenges, I've developed a philosophy of beauty that goes beyond skin deep. I advocate for skin positivity and resilience. My experience with Korean beauty products was a gateway to this world, reflecting my inclusive, compassionate, and environmentally conscious approach to beauty.

Content Creation and Public Speaking

As a digital content creator, I use my platform to unite communities and spread messages of compassion, sustainability, and justice. Whether it's through engaging social media posts, insightful podcasts, or impactful public speaking, I aim to resonate with clarity and purpose.
