Hat Making Art: Pinkham

Dayna Pinkham is a milliner and Portland legend. Her hats have been worn by rock stars, actors, and professional athletes, and they have graced many weddings and horse races around the world.

Dayna has alopecia, which caused her to go bald as a young woman. However, it also led her to hat making. She talked with us about her journey, not being afraid of working part-time jobs, the importance of patience, and how, if you follow your bliss, life leads you on the right course.

As young people with non-traditional career paths, we were very inspired by her insight and we thank her for sharing her story with us.
