In the final episode of our series, Breaking the Glass Ceiling, Kat Armstrong chats with the brilliant and creative Debora Annino. Debora’s story of creativity, faith and bravery is the inspiration we all need right now. 

Spending more than twenty-five years in the fashion apparel and textile industry, Debora led design, merchandising and sourcing teams developing national and international brands. No longer content to use business solely for profit, Debora returned to school earning an M.A. in Cross-Cultural Ministry from Dallas Theological Seminary. Now, she passionately pursues opportunities to use creativity for positive impact in the lives of others. Her creative enterprises include Common Project Artisan Market, a pop-up market showcasing a curated collection of local and global artisan brands that use the power of business for transformation, and Casita No. 8, a collection of unique, hand-embroidered home décor and textiles created by the indigenous Otomi women and men in Central Mexico. 
 
After her husband was diagnosed with terminal cancer, it was Barry’s last wish, and her last gift to him, to launch the Little Things Matter Foundation, which serves individuals, families and communities through small-scale, project-based investment, transforming communities and connecting lives. As the foundation’s executive director, Debora seeks investment opportunities that generate long-term impact and economic empowerment for marginalized people in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. Her foundation’s key contributions include sponsorship of a week-long  children’s camp that engages creativity, outdoor activities, creation science and spiritual formation; a women’s cooperative teaching creative and providing marketplace opportunities; and funding for organic gardens and chicken farming to provide nutritious food in addition to economic opportunities.
