Introducing our Spring 2019 Interns!

We’re so excited to welcome our Spring 2019 interns to the verynice family. In this brief interview, we ask Ashley and Kristen to tell us a little bit about themselves as well as what they look forward to learning at verynice.


Tell us a bit about yourself.

Ashley: I’m Ashley, a BFA Graphic Design student at CSULB, when I’m not working on projects I tend to be trying to learn a new skill or trying out a new recipe. 

Kristen: Hello! My name is Kristen Hahn, I graduated with a BFA in Illustration at ArtCenter College of Design which is where I first learned about the role of social impact in the creative industry. 

What are you looking forward to as a verynice intern?

A: I’m most looking forward to getting to learn about what its like to work in a studio environment and getting to know more about verynice’s give half attitude. 

K: I'm really excited to work with Matt and the verynice team to learn more about designing and creating in a social impact space. 

What is your favorite social cause?

A: I’m most dedicated to supporting better education, especially for those in the K-12 demographic. I feel it’s important for us to invest in education for a better future overall. 

K: I care most about helping to create a community against discrimination towards any person, whether it be for race, gender, religious views, etc.  

What passions and interests do you have outside of work?

A: I love to bake, I usually try to test out new recipes in my down time. I really appreciate the tactile nature of kneading dough and like to do things that involve working with my hands like making pottery and gardening. 

K: My biggest passion is music, whether it is finding new music, going to concerts, playing instruments, or even creating content for various artists. Baking is also extremely relaxing and therapeutic for me, and something I'm trying to do more of this year. 

Who is your biggest role model in life?

A: My biggest role model would have to be my peers, no one pushes me quite as much as my classmates do. The environment they create always makes me want to do better and grow as a person.

K: My biggest role model is my mother, who has taught me through countless ways and in countless moments, how to be a selfless person.
