Introducing Pink Things Intern: Malaika Astorga
Hi! I’m Malaika (AKA Flloral), a 19-year-old illustrator based out of Montreal, Canada. I’m currently in my third year of attending Concordia University for Communications studies, with a focus on Intermedia. I also run Flloral, a silk-screening company that provides tee shirts for bands, businesses, and record labels. My personal work involves a lot of intersectional feminist values, often touching on topics that affect me as a femme-identifying mixed-race person of colour — things I don’t see addressed in mainstream white feminism.
I’m so SO excited to be working for Pink Things because I believe that it holds the same values that I do — intersectional feminism and providing accessible support for artists of all kinds. That, and the fact that everything in my real life is pink, including my hair.
