Next Generation Chicago Steering Committee
Kristin Gudmundsson-Ceddia has always had a strong passion for fashion and design and fulfilled a dream by creating her own lifestyle brand, Loveknitz. Her desire to start her own business was driven by the goal to create something unique made with the expert craftsmanship and of the highest quality. While working with one of her manufacturing teams, based in Nepal, two devastating earthquakes occurred. Driven by her desire to help, Kristin decided to donate a portion of her company’s sales to UNICEF.
Kristin was raised across four countries; these experiences have shaped her mindset, creativity, and business sense. She received her BA in Psychology with a concentration in Human Development from DePaul University.
Kristin is dedicated to fundraising for the world’s children and is especially focused on supporting UNICEF’s projects in Nepal and Syria.
