Purdue knitter punk

Afton Marie Goins is an activist, difference maker and avid knitter with an unyielding enthusiasm to become a champion of individuality and service.

Goins, who is working on a minor in creative writing and hopes to write children's books, is an active member of Purdue University Neoteric Knitters (PUNK), a student organization that offers a friendly social atmosphere and community of like-minded knitting enthusiasts.

"To new students, my ultimate piece of advice is first of all to know yourself and love yourself, and second of all to love yourself enough to be able to own up and admit when you're wrong so that you can grow better from it,” she says.
