Meanwhile, I showed up to Albany with one goal: to show the judges my passion and my vision for a better future. I don’t have a comprehensive advisory board or provisional patent. I just have the idea to save our planet one piece of clothing at a time.
The idea for TerrApparel snuck up on me very quickly. At this point, it is honestly a blur as to how it got started. I do remember having the thought while looking at my dorm-room closet which was seemingly overflowing with old jackets that I didn’t have the heart to throw out. I also remember immediately turning to my computer to do some research, and then going out into the lounge of my freshman dorm to ask who else wanted in. I had no idea what I was doing, no plan, just an idea and ignorance as my drive.
