In recent months she’s been recognized for her social and entrepreneurial work, including by Womenetics, an Atlanta-based women’s empowerment group.
She’s also scheduled to speak with seven other successful Atlanta entrepreneurs at a Wednesday, June 20, Womenetics symposium at The Retreat at Perimeter Summit, which she says is important because of its focus on ways to empower women to become business leaders.
Ms. Jolluck also uses her connections and resources from Coleccion Luna to support various non-profits focused on human rights and women’s empowerment, particularly in Guatemala, including CARE, 50 Cents Period and Safe Passage.
Coleccion Luna and its handcrafted bead co-op in Guatelmala are also partnering with We Want Peace, a nonprofit created by Emmanuel Jal, a former Sudanese child soldier turned international peace activist, musician and writer, to stop the genocide in Sudan and promote lasting peace.
In that way, she says, even those with very little can make a difference.
“I have learned that it takes very little to have a positive social impact on the world,” she said. “We are truly a global community and it is important to be the change you wish to be in the world.”
