Jaime Richards (Teacher and Writer)

For over three decades, educator and coach Jaime Richards (Coca-Cola Scholars Educator of Distinction & Yale Educator Award recipient) has been respected and treasured by his elementary, junior high, high school and adult students. His popular "What It Takes" column appeared in Bay Area newspapers for a dozen years.

Amanda Fung (Artist and Designer)

A Bay Area native and UCLA alumna, Amanda Fung has a background in design and probably too many interests (book arts, drawing, baking, papercrafting, snacking, to name a few). She currently resides in Los Angeles, having changed career paths and is now studying to break into the animation industry as either a storyboard or background artist. Her style tends toward a colorful, cute and clean look, as she believes life is most worth living when we cultivate happiness through small moments of joy and humor.
