Fellows Spotlight: Jessica Youngblood

The Sseko Fellows are a group of women across the U.S. who share our story, sell our products, and make a difference in their community and our world. We are so lucky to walk alongside these women in creating a brighter future, and want to take a moment to introduce you to one of them, Jessica!

Jessica Youngblood recently hit ADVENTURESS STATUS, which is a huge deal in Sseko world, let us tell you! This means she sold over $10,000 worth of product in just one month last year! And that she has helped earn heaps of badges for her Sole Sister in Uganda to earn additional scholarship money for university. This ALSO means that she’ll be joining us on a FREE trip to Uganda in the spring! So, let’s introduce you to Jessica…

Fellows Spotlight: Sarah Woodson (She earned herself a FREE trip to Uganda!)

There’s a community of women spread across the US that are changing the way women are empowered globally. By selling Sseko products and sharing the Sseko story, these women are earning an additional scholarship for the women on our team in Uganda! They’re called the Sseko Fellows, heard of them? One of our Sseko Fellows just hit Adventuress Status (that means she sold $10,000 worth of Sseko, in ONE month!) and she’s earned herself a trip to Uganda to meet the team!

Sarah Woodson is a 27 year old full-time Sseko Fellow (and newlywed!) who recently moved to St. Louis, Missouri with her hubby. Even before she was a Fellow, Sseko played a big role in her life- we’re talkin’ all her Bridesmaids were decked out in Ribbon Sandals y’all. She’s passionate about a range of social justice issues and has even spent time working for an anti-trafficking agency in the past!  This lady is busy killin’ it all day everyday, and we’re so happy she had some time to answer some of our questions. Read on to get to know Sarah and her work as a Sseko Fellow!

How It's Made, Sseko Style, The Future is Bright

A few years ago, I was asked to speak at a photography conference in Portland. Odd, you see, because I am not a photographer (but this is another matter altogether.) But the conference was happening literally four blocks away from our office and it seemed to be a rad gathering of folks from around the country…so I obliged!

Good thing, because that’s where I first crossed-paths with Caroline and Jayden Lee of Team Woodnote.
