Mad Respect: Bibi Cornejo Borthwick
Sure she’s fashionable, gorgeous, and “in the know” within hip New York circles, but Bibi Cornejo Borthwick also has a humanitarian heart. The budding photographer is heavily focused on launching her own NGO called Tusisi, meaning “just us” in Swahili. The organization aims to empower orphans of Swaziland, South Africa, through music and arts programs. Did we mention she’s the daughter of photographer Mark Borthwick and designer Maria Cornejo which makes her all around cool, and full of magic creative dust. The Inside Source pays mad respect to Bibi who was kind enough to answer a few questions on what lights up her day…
