Interns: Robyn & Lindsay

Lizzie Wirgau

by Lizzie Wirgau The full Market Colors store has been live for about 7 weeks now. We've been incredibly blessed with a great number of product orders, selling out of some products, a new group of craftsmen (more about that soon), interviews with the press, and, most importantly, the capacity to increase the demand for work from our craftsmen in Africa!

With all our new business, it became very clear we needed more interns... fast! As I shared in the last intern post, I'm naturally very protective over Market Colors and I understand the importance of carefully selecting staff. After plenty of prayers, meetings, and brainstorming, Robyn and Lindsay have joined our Market Colors team as interns!

ROBYN

Robyn graduated from UCF in May with a degree in Advertising/Public Relations. She specifically has a passion for non-profit marketing/public relations. In addition to all things related to social media, she enjoys music, traveling, cinnamon, antiquing, oversized knit sweaters, and "pretty much everything else your grandma loves" -- her words, not mine. Robyn writes, "I am honored to be able to participate in the work that Market Colors is doing and am excited to use my passions and interests for an organization I believe in so much." Robyn is our Social Media Intern so if you read anything clever or see any awesome Instagram pics, she is the one to thank!

LINDSAY (and Thunder!)

Lindsay graduated from Rollins College in August with a degree in International Relations and a minor in Business. Throughout college, Lindsay traveled to Russia many times to help with the orphan crisis. Her mission trip to Haiti stirred up a passion for helping those in need. She writes, "I feel so blessed to be a part of an organization [Market Colors] that empowers African craftsmen to build a sustainable future for their families. I also love the amazing products that they make!" Lindsay is our PR Intern so her focus is on promoting our organization throughout the media. This is a huge need and Lindsay is doing an awesome job!
