Today at the Solstice Festival I met a woman named Diana. She works in a jewelry store. She was selling some of her products at the Solstice Festival.
Diana is not originally from Alaska. When i asked her where she lived before she told me she has lived everywhere. She told me that she is in a military family and the demands of the job causes her and her family to relocate often.
At the Solstice Festival she had lots of necklaces, headbands, and earrings to choose from. When i asked her about the store she told me her favorite part about the store was that a lot of teenage girls and young adult women like her products. She loves being able to talk to her costumers and help them pick out some jewelry and see the smiles on their faces when they leave.
She also likes the business side of the company. Although she likes making a profit that is not the only reason she is in the business. Another one of her favorite parts is getting to work with her best friend. They get to spend everyday together talking and laughing and they can feel like teenagers.
