While she was growing up, Munt would fold origami both at home and school. “I started checking out almost every origami book I could find at the library,” she says.
Munt got her first job at a small gift shop about a year and a half ago because she wanted to make money to go to an origami convention. On her first day, she gave her bosses a little dollar-bill koi. They loved it and put it on display for everyone to see. Soon, customers started asking Munt if she could make origami figures for them.
