We love introducing you to the folks who make things happen around here! So friends, meet Megan. She started off as an intern with us and is now on our Social Media Team as a student at the University of South Carolina (go Gamecocks!). She's smart, so kind, passionate, and just really great. Here's a little interview with her to get to know her better:
1. How did you learn about Clothed in Hope?
During my freshman year at USC, I heard Amy speak to the retail program. Her excitement and vision for the organization was contagious! I knew I wanted to be involved in Clothed in Hope's mission.
2. If you could eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Apple Pie is one of my favorite foods! Not only is it delicious, but it also makes me think of being surrounded by family during the holidays.
3. What is your favorite CiH product?
I like the twist bracelets because I love layering the pop of color with other neutral, metallic bracelets.
4. What is the last book you read?
I enjoy re-reading bits and pieces of the classic books I read in High School. The most recent book I picked up and reread was Pride and Prejudice.
5. What drew you to join the CiH team?
Fashion is all around us but when it is combined with service it takes on a more important meaning. Fashion becomes a humanitarian mission. I respect the gifts and talents of the Zambian women and admire their trade. Working at Clothed in Hope allows me to support the Zambian vulnerable women so that they can support their families.
6. If you had to describe yourself as an animal, which one would it be?
I would be a peacock. They have fun, colorful feathers and portray a bohemian style.
7. Tell us one fun fact about yourself.
I used to do Irish Dance. I love the ornate dresses, authentic Irish music, and it is a fun way to exercise.
