Lauren, Susquehanna Art Museum
Lauren showed me that whenever I feel stressed, there’s peace to be found in the love of art. Just thinking about my days back in HACC’s arts program makes me smile! Lauren wants us to discover something unexpected every time we visit a gallery. She designs gallery spaces that not only show amazing works of art, but through the artists’ point of view, we’re also seeing the world, and perhaps even ourselves.
Sierra, Ezer Rising
“We have content just flowing every single day of the week from these amazing women, who, again, are just volunteering their time and emotional energy, because we are all so invested in seeing women freed from patriarchy and seeing women freed from oppression.” Sierra’s story gave me goosebumps. She works hard every day for this important cause and stands up for people that she cares deeply for.
Laura, Whole Wide World Toys
Laura’s journey started with wanting to share the love of travel with children. It led to designing a product, starting a business, and building a community of entrepreneurs.
