"From this internship I have been able to gain new skills and find self assurance in the skills that I wasn't sure I had mastered. I want to say thank you for allowing me so much independence in my designs and for encouraging me to be creative! It has been such a pleasure to work alongside Guillermina, a type of learning that I know I could not have experienced anywhere else."
- Lily Kinder, Fashion Design Intern

"Being the Women’s Program Manager was a continuous teach and learn experience, going further beyond what I was expecting. It made me richer, professionally and culturally. But I also learnt that, more than the knowledge I could provide to the program, it was tremendously transforming listening to what they had to say and what they didn’t say, valorizing their work and their accomplishments; hence better attending their needs, hopes and beliefs. Working with local women and with ethical fashion I learnt the power of transformation; from a fabric, a community, a dream."
– Patricia, Women’s Program Manager
