Claire Stewart HOYFC Staff

Name: Claire
Job at HOYFC: Assistant Packing Master, Post Officer Runner, Chocolate Muncher, Coffee Gulper
What's the best thing about working at HOYFC?: HOYFC is definitely the most colourful job I have ever had, quite literally! It sounds corny but I love being surrounded by all these super bright, colourful, glittery products, packing them up, and sending them off into the world and to their new homes! It's very methodical and productive and I love that.
What's your favourite HOYFC product?: The first pin I bought from HOYFC was the purple Strong As Fuck Pin. It’s such a short, sharp, and simply mantra and it’s perfect for repeating on days where I don’t feel as strong as I know I am. Also, the I Got Dressed Today bobble hat which I wear rain and shine, haha.
What do you like to do outside of HOYFC?: I’m currently studying for my Masters Degree in Occupational Therapy, which is hard but very rewarding! I have an under-grad in animation and have worked as an illustrator for years, so when I’m not studying, sleeping or hanging out at the pub, I’m usually tucked up in my bedroom drawing on my beloved graphics tablet.
Describe yourself in three words: Anxious, enthusiastic, busy!
