Who We Are
Clarissa graduated in 2016 at Utah State University. She started regularly volunteering at Global Village with her sister and soon found a sincere love for fair trade and nonprofit organizations. She was so impressed with the work that was being done at Global Village and the positive changes it was having on disadvantaged communities abroad.
Since becoming the manager she has concluded that it is her life mission to help others and be involved in organizations that are contributing to a better world. Her favorite thing about fair trade is that there is a large focus on women and on empowering groups that are oftentimes given unequal opportunities. Her favorite quote about fair trade is by Anna Lappe: "Every time you spend money, you're casting a vote for the kind of world you want." She is beyond grateful for the opportunity to be working with Global Village and all of its artisans.
Hailey is from Alabama. She is currently in Logan to attend Utah State University. She volunteered with Global Village Gifts before becoming the Volunteer Coordinator. She loves the positive environment that Global Village Gifts offers and is proud to be a part of the social movement to end poverty.
With a passion for activism and travel, she appreciates the opportunities that fair trade gives people all over the world. Her favorite thing about fair trade is the ethical business practices it upholds. There is no gender, class, or race discrimination which ensures everyone has an equal opportunity in the global market. It cultivates an environment of mutual respect where workers are safe and empowered. She is thrilled to be working for a place that constantly strives to improve our world.
