One. Do not promise when you’re happy.
Two. When you are angry, do not respond.
Three. Do not decide when you’re sad.
Every abyss is navigable by little paper boats.

Photojournalism Intern, Uganda
She takes amazing photos, but her real masterpiece are her peanut butter Rice Krispie treats.
Hometown: Spokane, WA
Favorite KKi product: "I love 'the Lilly' - although there are some pretty amazing products in the works here for Spring 2014 that may change that!”
Favorite thing about your job? “I get to tag along with the mentors when they visit the homes of the ladies and help document their families and houses. It’s incredible being able to see all the different tangible ways these ladies are growing because of their involvement with Krochet Kids intl.”
How would your best friend describe you? “She would probably mention that I tend to be quiet, but I’m a big thinker and dreamer and I have a lot of love for the world!”
What is something that makes you unique? "I spent 15 years training as a dancer, and I’ve tried pretty much every kind of dance class there is out there to try. You name it, I’ve given it a shot… I’m even certified to teach Zumba. We can bust some moves out together."
What does the word “empowerment” mean to you? "When I see the word empowerment, the ‘power’ element jumps out at me. Power to make choices about the course of one’s own life. Power to provide for family. Power to write your story the way you want it to be told."
Anna has been working with KKi in Uganda for almost three months now. You can see her experiences there and photography by checking out #gulucrew on Instagram.
