This summer, Circular Bodies welcomed a very special team of interns to work across design, marketing and sustainability. Here is a bit about our team. Circular Bodies would not be where it is at if it wasn't for this special group that has been with us this summer.
Avita is our Digital Marketing intern. She is a New York based creative with a love for storytelling, interactivity and innovative modes of thinking, Avita is a rising senior at Parsons School of Design continuing her education in the Strategic Design & Management BBA Program. To her, the purpose of design is to serve a greater good and leave spaces better than one finds them.
Brought up in New Delhi, she takes pride in her Indian heritage and uses her everyday bicultural interactions as a source of inspiration while envisioning a better tomorrow. Keen on the concept of sustainability, she strives to inculcate its “green motive” into everything she creates.
