    • February 9, 2019 – When asked to define servant leadership, how that applies to her life now, and her future career, Viviane said: “Servant leadership, for me it’s all about leading people by serving them. It means as a leader I have to serve my community by working for their profit. I am implementing servant leadership now by being the voice of the voiceless. As a journalist, I must work for assessing people’s problem and trying to solve them by being a watch dog.”

    • July 7, 2018 – The most challenging thing Viviane faced during this last school year was time management. She said it was difficult for her to know what things to prioritize at what times, but through some of the These Numbers Have Faces leadership trainings she was able to learn how to better manage her time and arrange her schedule as needed. This summer, she is looking forward to spending time with her family and friends, and putting into practice all the things she has learned at school this last year!
    • May 12, 2018 – The two things Viviane values most are friendship and hard work, because both have helped her to achieve her goals!

    • Jan 25, 2018 – A book that Viviane read recently that she loved was No Place for a Lady by Vivian Voucher. The idea in the book that stood out to her the most was how in current society more girls are risk takers, ambitious and persistent and how this has lead to making their lives brighter!

Viviane’S CIRCLE

  • K. McGuire – Stillwater, OK


Viviane grew up the youngest of eight children raised by their single mom. From a young age, she admired her mom’s hard-working spirit and tenacity in the face of hardship. She even began cultivating her own livestock and selling household items at the age of ten to contribute to the family’s financial needs. Thanks to a role model like her mom, Vivianne is determined to be a positive impact in her community, family, and country.

With a degree in Journalism and Communication, her goal is to give a voice to the voiceless and close the gap in a predominantly male workplace. She wants to share her knowledge and teach others about financial planning, job creation, and innovative problem solving. Viviane is already showing selfless leadership. She is excited to gain even more confidence alongside her degree!
