Life throws curveballs, and Futuress’ financial struggles and the recession have also impacted our team members, who freelance for Futuress, alongside juggling their other jobs and family commitments.
With a heavy heart, we have to bid farewell to our beloved co-founder and co-director Nina Paim. We are deeply grateful to Nina for pouring her heart and soul into Futuress and for steering this ship through some amazing journeys!
Luckily, it’s not all doom and gloom! We do have an exciting silver lining to share as well: Nina is embarking on a fantastic new endeavor—she’s opening a bookstore publisher in Porto, Portugal! So it’s not a goodbye, but rather a heartfelt “see you soon” to Nina. We’re here cheering for her every step of the way, and we’ll be sure to keep you posted on her new project!
As we go through this period of transition, we’re thrilled to welcome Mio Kojima as our new co-director! Mio has been with Futuress since the beginning, and this platform wouldn’t be what it is today without her incredible contributions as managing editor and curator of the Let’s Talk series. We’re beyond excited to work with Mio more closely, bringing her passion and dedication to the task at hand!
