Throughout August, we will be featuring Ful team members in Back To School interviews. Along with the interviews we will be sharing school photos of our staff, most of which are embarrassing! So, get ready for a good laugh.
Everyone, meet Kelsey. She’s been with Ful for several years and is passionate about music, art and of course, Ful bags.
Kelsey, age 11
FUL: Give us a background on this photo – Age? Grade? Favorite Subject? Favorite Activity?
KELSEY: This is my sixth grade school photo, I believe I was around 11 or 12. I remember being so pumped about this picture, in spite of my incredibly awkward appearance. I had just gotten my ears pierced, so I wore a headband to push my hair back allowing my earrings to be seen. I was so proud to have my ears pierced! Also, I had just put my glasses away and was wearing contacts for the first time in a school pic. Score!
My favorite subject was English. I was weak in Science and Math, but loved books and writing. I also enjoyed passing notes in class, (I got in trouble several times for that) and playing on the playground with my friends at recess.
FUL: Who was your favorite teacher?
KELSEY: Out of all of my schooling, my favorite teacher was Ms. Wingfield. She taught journalism and oral communications. Ms. Wingfield challenged us, was super fun and creative! Plus, I babysat her son pretty regularly and he was cute as a button.
FUL: What was your least favorite thing about school?
KELSEY: I hated the lunch room food. Hated it! I brought my lunch the majority of the time, even when it wasn’t ‘cool’ anymore. I actually carried a Barbie lunchbox through my senior year of high school. The only times I would not bring my lunch was during the winter when they served soup and grilled cheese, it was delicious. Growing up, I hated studying. Who doesn’t, right? However, in college I LOVED to study and write papers. I was a mega-nerd.
FUL: What Ful gear do you recommend for the 2014 school year?
KELSEY: We have really pulled out all the stops for Back To School 2014! I can’t get enough of our Alleyway line. I love the clean lines and all the tech features. I would highly recommend the Live Wire Laptop Backpack. The features on this bag are insane, plus the amount of storage it offers is above and beyond. The side entry laptop compartment is my favorite feature. With technology being a large part of learning, the laptop compartment keeps computers safe from the other items in the bag. Smart design if you ask me!
FUL: What are you favorite bag features?
KELSEY: As mentioned before, I love the laptop compartment. However, the Live Wire is full of features. There is a padded tablet sleeve for added tech protection and a shoulder pocket for an MP3 player or phone. Plus, the internal organizer is incredibly helpful to maintain personal items.
