My name is Katie (she/her) and I’m in my senior year here at Evergreen. I’m originally from Virginia but growing up as a military kid has allowed me to live all over the United States as well as overseas. I have studied a few subjects here including European history, literature, sustainable agriculture, as well as business and marketing. My studies have all culminated into a focus on sustainable business, specifically sustainable fashion and textiles. The most important part of my education so far has been the ability to conduct independent research for credit which I have been able to incorporate into an internship with a sustainable fashion company abroad in Ireland as well as an independent learning contract on the role of textile crafts in small scale economies. I’ve loved every moment of my education at Evergreen and am happy to share how the school has encouraged me to love to learn.
