Vivian Duran says that the best part of being a design student who also works full-time is being able to show her work to her 6-year old daughter, who is her biggest fan and also her toughest critic! Vivian believes passionately in design as a problem-solving tool. In addition to classes, work and motherhood, she interns at MoreKeting, a Miami-based 360 marketing agency. There she has learned new skills from web development, photography, and video editing, to digital ad campaigns, customer journey and content strategies. She has also developed an interest in marketing, and plans one day to pursue a Master’s Degree in Marketing. Vivian enjoys traveling and encouraging her daughter’s experience in to the outdoors. She and her daughter may often be found wandering outdoors barefoot, staring at the sunset or star gazing. WHERE YOU BORN AND WHERE DO YOU LIVE NOW? Born in Bogotá, Colombia.
