I've been randomly selected to be on the Etsy Community Council.
So I took a picture as to fit in with the rest of the crew (see other About Us pictures here) its possible I just wanted to wear my orange lab coat (cuz its awesome) because no one asked us to take pictures of ourselves. ha! I saw a comment on their blog post where a girl said she wanted to be on the council so she could have her picture taken in a lab coat because her mother had always wanted her to be a doctor, and I immediately thought of my orange lab coat. It was too perfect to pass up.
The gig lasts 3 months, I am not sure what it entails just yet. Its a new idea that Etsy is organizing and I love it. I was on student council as a highschool kid (president of my freshman class), I dunno if that is any sort of credentials... but its all I've got :)
I hope I serve my community well.
