Sloan Smith

Great Lakes Regional Fellow

Sloan Smith is a senior at Loyola University of Chicago (LUC) where she plans on graduating with a BA in political science along with a minor in criminal justice. Toward the end of her sophomore year of college she came across Oxfam, a global nonprofit whose mission is to end world poverty. Oxfam was the first organization to really introduce what Fair Trade was, and soon after her training she realized she wanted to do more. After being a CHANGE leader for Oxfam and starting her own chapter at school during her junior year, she felt that the next step for her would be to dive deeper into Fair Trade by learning more and educating her community around her. She is looking forward to providing a platform for Fair Trade at her university and becoming a more well informed and socially responsible person.
