I am currently a Junior at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln where I am working towards my Bachelor’s degree in Textile, Merchandising, and Fashion Design. This past year I had an incredible opportunity through the Mentors as an intern working with an ethical fashion company called Sapahn. Sapahn is a emphasizes the importance of human rights and fair trade.
Throughout my time being with Sapahn I have learned far more valuable lessons than I could have ever imagined. This company, along with the people I was mentored by, inspired me to work harder, dig deeper and dream bigger. Over the past year I was challenged and motivated by Brooke Mullen, the founder of Sapahn. I realized that I needed this push and motivation to finally realize my full potential. This company has given me so much and it is my goal to give that much back to another individual someday.
