"Designed for Joy has given me opportunities I couldn't find anywhere else. I was honored to have the opportunity to work alongside an amazing founder and executive director of the company as well as artisans. I gained work experience in my field but also personal growth experience during the devotional time with the team. Being a part of one of Designed For Joy's biggest fundraisers was an amazing experience for me to build my professional growth. I will always have a connection to the place and the people I had the amazing opportunity to work with."

"I loved interning with Designed For Joy in the fall of 2020. This internship allowed me to develop my skills and knowledge in marketing and environmental sustainability, while working to support and empower vulnerable women from our community. It was so inspiring to work alongside women that are passionate about making sure other women get the second chance they deserve. I am very grateful for everything I gained from this internship and I hope to stay involved with Designed For Joy."
