Kenya Wilson, UncommonGoods Customer Service Supervisor

My hometown is…
Richmond, Virginia

The best customer interaction I’ve had at UncommonGoods was…
I spoke with a customer once who now orders with us by mail. She is a retired writer. Twice she sent me a letter with her orders (she refers to me as Kenya, the girl from Brooklyn). She writes beautifully about her travels through Kenya, and about why she loves that UncommonGoods gives back.

I’m inspired by…
It changes. Music is my go to, though, for inspiration. Depending on what type of inspiration I need, I know just where to go on my playlist for it. I am also inspired when I see my friends succeed.

My guilty pleasure is…
Coffee. I love the taste and the smell of it. If I let myself, I could drink it all day.

An uncommon fact about me…
I am also an actor.

My favorite thing about living in New York City is…
The diversity. I moved here on my own one month after graduating high school. I knew I wanted to make New York my home. I love it here.

My style is…
I’m not sure! Whatever makes me feel most comfortable.

Working at UncommonGoods, I’ve learned…
Just how many people in this world actually do care about sustainability. That they will support it in any way they can. Another inspiration!

Would you rather…Get to hang out with your favorite actor for an entire day or get an all-expenses paid week-long trip to any destination you choose?
I’d love to spend the day with Sidney Poitier.

Kenya is a Customer Service Supervisor at UncommonGoods. She's also an actor who loves music, coffee, and New York City life. Her favorite items are the necklaces designed by Artist Mary Steratore, and she is going to slowly collect each one to mix and match.
