“I was a Social Media intern with LAIKA Magazine and loved my experience. I learned valuable skills that prepared me for the work that I do now as a photographer. As a vegan, it was a great place to learn more about veganism and activism. I felt like I was a part of something bigger than myself. I was surrounded by people who loved what they were working on, and all of us knew our work was for the greater good. I worked very closely with Julie, the founder, and was able to learn so much from her. I look back at my time at LAIKA as a positive, inspiring and rewarding time.” — Vee Hertel, photographer.
