STATE Agents: Top 3

Our STATE family would not be complete without our STATE Agents from across the country. This time around, we reached out to some of our extended family to share a little bit about themselves and give us some insight into life as a STATE Agent. These STATE Agents got your back.

First up…

Name: Nina

College: Yale University

STATE: College students have a lot going on. What motivated you to be a STATE Agent on top of everything else you’re tackling? 

Nina: This past fall, my sister introduced me to STATE, and told me about their mission (as well as their partnership with Beyonce and #BEYGOOD). From then on, I was really intrigued by their operation. When I was contacted to become a STATE Agent, not only did I love their products, but I was excited to help make a difference! The decision was a no-brainer.

STATE: Of the many sales you landed, which one was the most satisfying? 

Nina: To be perfectly honest, all sales that I made were satisfying. Even though I was not always the one purchasing the bag, I felt like I was making a difference in a someone’s life, by providing them with a new bag filled with school supplies. It was a gratifying experience to be involved in a project that focuses on education, which is an issue that needs to become more of a priority in this country.

STATE: What bag are you rockin’ these days? 

Nina: Recently, I haven’t been seen without my black Mercer bag. It goes with everything and is very practical for the school day. However, when it gets warmer I might have to start using my Garfield bag! It’s a knockout.

STATE: Pretend you were just appointed the new STATE Bags lead designer. What’s your first bag creation - style, fabric and color? 

Nina: I’m really into the bucket backpack trend going on right now, so I would probably make a black leather bucket bag with a lid that is lined with a bright color.

STATE: Who’s your current favorite recording artist? What’s your favorite song at the moment? 

Nina: That is a very tough question. I am constantly listening to my Spotify! I pretty much love all types of music, but at the moment, I cannot stop listening to Kendrick Lamar’s new album, To Pimp A Butterfly.

Next up…

Name: Shari

College: Boston University

STATE: College students have a lot going on. What motivated you to be a STATE Agent on top of everything else you’re tackling?

Shari: When I heard that STATE was looking for some college-aged STATE Agents, I didn’t want to pass up the opportunity, as it is my last semester of college and want to partake in as many college-y activities as possible in the time I have left here at BU. I have always loved and identified with the mission statement of STATE Bags and was really just excited to have the opportunity to support STATE in accomplishing their goals of giving back to those in need. I’m so grateful that I was able to play a very small part in the awesome-ness that STATE brings to the world on a daily basis.

STATE: Of the many sales you landed, which one was the most satisfying?

Shari: To be honest, the sales that were most satisfying were the ones that were in person because I was able to use the Square credit card swiper on my iPhone. That little thing is so legit.

STATE: What bag are you rockin’ these days?

Shari: I’m rockin’ my olive Smith bag. I use it as a purse, backpack, etc. I love it. I also sport a Clinton pencil case in which I hold some pens and pencils, but mostly lots and lots of chocolate.

STATE: Pretend you were just appointed the new STATE Bags lead designer. What’s your first bag creation - style, fabric and color?

Shari: Hmm.. If I was the new STATE Bag lead designer, I think I would create a stylish duffel bag. You know, something you can use for the gym or an overnight. I’m thinking black or navy canvas with brown leather straps. A few little pockets for keys, money, etc. and a spot for a water bottle. Classy but functional.

STATE: Who’s your current favorite recording artist? What’s your favorite song at the moment?

Shari: I can’t say I have a favorite recording artist. I like a lot of different types of artists and genres. Put on almost any catchy song on the radio and I’ll be happy!

Last, but not least…

Name: Chloe

College: Tulane University

STATE: College students have a lot going on. What motivated you to be a STATE Agent on top of everything else you’re tackling?

Chloe: I have always known about STATE Bags and how great of a cause it is, but last semester I was in a social entrepreneurship class and I actually did a lot of research on STATE Bags. Through this, I gained a new understanding of how great of a job the company is doing to address the needs of American children living with challenging circumstances. I saw the opportunity posted through the Camp Micah Facebook page and thought it was the perfect way for me to get involved! Tulane University has a very strong focus on public service, so I thought STATE Bags would be a great company to introduce and bring to campus. 

STATE: Of the many sales you landed, which one was the most satisfying?

Chloe: I had some of my friends post in their sorority Facebook pages and one girl who I had never met reached out to me because she was very interested in what STATE does and loved the bags too. She wanted to hear more about the company and how she could get involved besides buying a bag, which she did. It was very rewarding to see that people were really appreciating the cause and wanting to get involved. 

STATE: What bag are you rockin’ these days?

Chloe: I currently own the Mercer as well as the Smith and I love them both. The Mercer is great for class since it has the handy laptop pocket, and the Smith I can really rock anywhere, from studying to traveling to shopping. 

STATE: Pretend you were just appointed the new STATE Bags lead designer. What’s your first bag creation - style, fabric and color?

Chloe: I think if I was appointed the new STATE Bags lead designer, I would create a canvas tote bag and it would be available in different colors, such as, solids, block colors, and patterns. 

STATE: Who’s your current favorite recording artist? What’s your favorite song at the moment?

Chloe: It’s hard to pick just one, but some of my favorites right now are Sam Smith, HAIM, Walk the Moon and Bastille. At the moment, my favorite song is probably anything that comes out of Sam Smith’s mouth.
