“I was drawn to the WVC internship, because it combines three of my greatest passions: working outdoors, environmental consciousness, and design processes. As an intern at WVC, I hope to explore the field of organic agriculture and gain hands-on farm and animal care experience, while forming a deeper connection with fiber processing techniques.” Ana is a 2017 Mount Mary University, WI graduate in Fashion Design with special interest in using upcycled materials.
