Last month, I was invited to share my story with Kakaw Designs for a university class at Universidad Rafael Landívar in Antigua, Guatemala. What an honor!
I wasn’t really sure what to expect, but the process was natural through videos, products, a little nervous talk on my part, and lots of questions from the students. It was a refreshing experience for me as a founder of Kakaw Designs, and also as a teacher here in Guatemala to know that there are students who really are curious, open, eager to ask questions, and think critically.
It was also a fantastic reminder of how far we’ve come as a socially-conscious business. The student who invited me for the talk had prepared to show my horrific Kickstarter video (this is when I started sweating, yes), but it turned out to be a rewarding retrospective exercise. So, I’ll share it with you here. This video with the project goal of only $2000 started what is today Kakaw Designs!
