Nilam typifies BENI.

She’s a melting pot of influences. Half Pakistani and half Polish, born and raised in international Berlin. She came from humble beginnings to being one of Germany’s biggest personalities.

She has throughout her whole life upended boundaries, labels and obstacles in front of her. She’ll be the first to tell you it isn’t easy and she still struggles with it day to day, but I’ve always been able to connect with her on that process. How she is in constant conversation with her identity and surroundings. 

So naturally, I was over the moon to be able to work on a small project with a friend like her and have her part of the BENI family.
