JOURNEY

    • 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!
    • Dec 18, 2017 – On Christmas Viviane’s family has meat that they share with their friends and neighbors. Viviane says the word she thinks her friends would describe her as is “hardworking” because she likes to always be working on something!
    • Oct 8, 2017 – Viviane’s summer was especially meaningful to her because she was able to work in a media house as a journalist for the first time, and she attended an East African Communication Association training! Viviane is happy to have people who believe in her and who are willing to invest in her journey; her goal is to study hard in class.

Viviane’S CIRCLE

  • K. McGuire – Stillwater, OK

BIO

Viviane grew up the youngest of eight children, raised by her 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 the the family’s financial needs. With a role model like her mom, Vivianne is determined to positively impact 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, and she is excited to gain even more confidence alongside her degree.

In her spare time, Viviane enjoys karate, singing, and volunteering her time teaching others!
