Hello everybody! We’re beyond excited to introduce you to our very first group of Pinterest ambassadors.
Our ambassadors come from all walks of life. They’re chefs, DIYsters, experienced woodworkers, fashion experts…among many, many other things. And they hail from cities and towns across the United States, from California to Georgia.
The one thing all our ambassadors have in common is they use Pinterest to bring their creative ideas to life. And they’re born teachers, people who want to share their know-how with the community.
Each of our ambassadors will be organizing meetups and demos where you can learn first hand how Pinterest can help you get a little more creative every day.
