Speed Dating is a series where we get to know some of our favorite brand evangelists, whether they’re artists, designers, entrepreneurs, activists, or full-time parents! Today in the hot seat is Athena Sotiropoulos (@diva.on.a.dime), a lifestyle blogger and influencer with an emphasis on women’s empowerment and education.
