To kick off the launch of our brand-new Batik hair accessories collection benefitting the 3-21 Foundation, we introduced a new face to the KAYU family—Anna Burtnett. Anna is a full-time student (and part-time model!) living with Down Syndrome. After showing off her style in our latest photoshoot, Anna answered a few questions for us about what she enjoys doing when she’s not in front of the camera. We think her playful, personality-filled answers speak for themselves.
For more information about our collection benefitting the 3-21 Foundation, read our interview with founder Julie Messina here.
