In Her Own Words...
"As a 21 year old Business Administration student from a small town in northern Peru, Elba Fahsbender had dreams and ambitions of using her education to help disadvantaged communities through social economic autonomy programs. By serving as an Ambassador of Artisans and by being inspired by her own cultural roots, Elba developed a strong interest in the promotion and innovation of Peruvian’s artisan heritage as a means to generate income for rural communities.
Her love for helping people also compels Elba to participate in social programs that aim to make a difference with children that have special needs. She is a positive and optimistic person who believes that making the best of every moment is a blessing to share with and learn from others.
Even with the difficulties and challenges in the world today, Elba hopes that each successive generation does not lose sight that by working together, we can help build a brighter future."
