one million pencils

About Me


My name is Meg. I'm a sophomore at UC Berkeley, an artist, an English student, and a chicken owner. I grew up in the Pacific Northwest, where drawing was one of my favorite ways to pass rainy afternoons. As I grew older, I became more aware of the importance of pencils in my own life and education, and I wanted to do my part to bring pencils to students who didn't have them. So I decided to use my artwork to create a line of designer pencils, and this project was born. Today I have sent over 6000 pencils to Ghana. I've set an enormous goal for myself--to one day send one million pencils to Ghana--but with your help, it’s possible.
