In a world full of overproduction, it is hard to come by people who are truly genuine. In an attempt to create an illusion of absolute perfection we devalue the importance of realness. This new focus that society has placed on idyllic people has cost us some of the rawness that we used to be able to offer each other. And it is this rawness that truly enabled people to be bold, brave. To stand tall and proud in an ever turbulent world. This is why coming across someone who is truly raw is so incredible. Niki Koss has that rawness that is so difficult to come by, and we love it.
