Posted by SVP Fast PItch

We are 10 days away from an unforgettable evening! Don’t miss your chance to make an impact. Purchase your ticket and join us on November 10. Check back daily as we countdown to our big day and introduce all 11 finalists.

Our Mission: Empowering the native artisans by giving them access to the global markets.

What inspires you most about the work you do? Handmade items are so much more special, unlike mass produced one size fits all consumer culture. But most of the native artisans around the world are facing demise of handcrafts and a loss of their cultural identity. The most inspiring part of my work is to make those handmade products available globally which helps with reviving the dying art. This also creates a demand for education in these skills resulting in socioeconomic opportunities around the world.

What are you most excited about on November 10th? Well I’m excited about being a part of SVP program in general and on the day of being in the room with so many passionate people striving to make the world a better place.

Tell us a little known fact about you: I’m obsessed with Dove Dark Chocolate bars. If it was possible I could eat dozens of it everyday

What are some of your favorite things to do in Seattle or the PNW? Exploring the Pacific Northwest hiking trails that lead to the most amazing views and summit them.
