“My professor encouraged me to take this opportunity and gain some experience working for a social business. Because of her, I took the offer. When briefed on the vision of WHOW, I was interested in the approach and the focus on every angle of the production chain. It is not simply about making money. The transparency that WHOW stands for is something I can relate to and support”.
