ASSOCIATION NEWS Fragrance Creators’ First Summer Intern: Layla Haqqanni This summer, Fragrance Creators was joined by Layla Haqqanni, a third year student at the University of San Francisco, who served as a Summer Intern, supporting the association’s social media content development. She also participated in the association’s 2019 Federal Fly-In on May 15, 2019—her first time on Capitol Hill! “At school, I am studying entrepreneurship and innovation—two things that I know the fragrance industry values,” said Haqqanni. “I have several years of experience working in my family’s business, and I have always aspired to start my own company one day. I truly believe businesses can work with all stakeholders to lead policies that drive positive change in the world. Having the opportunity to support the Fragrance Creators team and participate in its fly-in meant the world to me. I did a lot of listening and learning this summer and am coming away from this experience with a better understanding of how associations work to promote policies for the good of all people.” We wish Layla the best of luck in the new school year and hope to see her on her next visit to Washington, D.C.
