The Mammalian Daily has chosen Holstein Fashion president and CEO Balbina Ko as its 2017 Animal of the Year.
At a press conference at noon today, TMD managing editor Orphea Haas said the newspaper’s staff chose to honour Ko because of her ”leadership in both business and in the area of equality among the species.”
“Through her company and by her own efforts, Balbina Ko has served as a leader in The Park’s business community,” Haas said. “Over the past few years, she has proven what she believes: that those engaged in business should make an effort and can make a difference in the lives of those who feel they do not have equal opportunity. Since establishing the company’s charity, EQUALSS, she has fought tirelessly for the rights of The Park’s striped and spotted, and her company has raised a sizeable amount through its EQUALSS poduct line to support the charity and its beneficiaries.
The Mammalian Daily salutes the ongoing work of Balbina Ko and Holstein Fashion and wishes all citizens and residents of The Park the best in 2018.
