Chrissi has been making jewelry for us for 5 months! We have loved watching her grow through the program and are so excited to share her experience with Strings.
Q: What were your first thoughts on Strings for Hope?
A: I thought it was really cool and creative and charitable. It combines two of my favorite things: helping people and creating sh*t!
Q: What have you learned thus far by being apart of the program?
A: Making jewelry is a really good outlet to relieve stress and anger. If I feel angry, I just make a bracelet. I have also learned that this is the first thing I haven't quit. I hate doing things I don't get the first time, but with this and recovery, I keep trying.
Q: What does hope mean to you?
A: Anytime someone asks me what a word means to me, my brain answers in 4 words to break it down... this probably comes from my writing nature. Hope to me means: heart open personified evaluation.
Q: What is your favorite part about String for Hope?
A: the women
Q: Where would you like to see the company go?
A: I would love to see more jewelry wraps with crystals and other designs.
Q: Where do you see yourself 2 years from now?
A: I see myself as a published writer.
Q: Share a quote from an original poem:
A: "In a world with unrelated reality stars, she just wants to be the narrative in a human interest documentary."
Our CEO and Director of Operations attended an event hosted by Zero Waste. The event was attended by companies that focus on sustainability in the local Nashville area. We learned so much about how our community is bettering our environment and how we can do more to help!
