Meet The Team - Legacy Rivera

Legacy joined MINNA last year as an intern in partnership with local organization Perfect 10. She quickly became our #1 inventory organizer! We love Legacy's take on what it means to work ethically, and we're so excited to have as part of the team.

Legacy Rivera

Where are you from?
Spokane, Washington

What do you do at MINNA?
I am a Retail Associate - This means helping out in the store, and working on a lot of organizational inventory tasks.

How did you get started with MINNA? 
An older friend who knew the people working at MINNA, told me she thought I could be an asset for the store and set up a meeting with me and two really cool women. I met Sara and Margaret at the store and I loved what the store was doing and their mission. I started off as an intern and ended up staying for the job!

What does working ethically mean to you?
Working ethically, to me, means to always conquer the day with your mission on the mind. Having obstacles but always fighting for what you believe in.

An unexpected day off looks like…
Sleeping in until my body needs to, making meals, also watching Netflix and Youtube!

Secret/hidden talents?
Writing & Drawing!
