Last summer, I designed two tees and submitted them to a She’s the First design contest. BOTH of them were selected to be one of the seven winners, and She’s the First went on to sell them to fund girls’ education across the globe.
This picture is with one of the sponsored girls with one of MY designs, and it’s so cool to see that something like that went from my brain and my computer screen all the way to India, and directly funded something so awesome. Here’s an excerpt from the article that was posted…
“Today I bring back an old friend of ours: Remember Jancy? Jancy is a senior at Shanti Bhavan and was chosen to judge the Cupcake T-Shirt Design contest this past Fall. Being the top art student at Shanti Bhavan made her well qualified for the task. Someday, she hopes to be a fashion designer and wants to take business courses in college so she can start her own fashion company. Given how savvy she already is, I wouldn’t be surprised if she were one day running her own fashion empire!
Well it took a while, but here Jancy is receiving her favorite t-shirt pick (designed by Kelsey Thorn, Skidmore College Senior) and tote bag (designed by Krista Firkins, Emerson College Senior).”
I don’t usually have a reason to post on here, but I thought this was really awesome.
