Almost all of my fellow classmates that graduated with a degree in Economics from University of Chicago in 2010 went to work as consultants or financial analysts. I was one of those. With a tough job market, a secure job in an established corporation seemed like a blessing. After two years of suits, ties, and the corporate world, I realized that there were many more opportunities and fields of work than what I had previously considered. And, I didn't lack the talent, knowledge or experience to take a leap of faith. I am now a full-time student at NYU, studying Media, Marketing, Communications and Branding. And, I am part-time employee at DramaFever, a tech startup based in New York City.
Fashion /Graphic Designer
I studied graphic design in University of Miami and obtained a Fashion design degree from the Art Institute. I am bilingual in English and Spanish. I have always been passionate about creating with my hands and my main goal in life has been to design cloths that will make people feel comfortable worn. Therefore, I started my own company called NHABI. NHABI is a South Florida based Fashion and Fabric Design Company where, I am the head designer and CEO. For our first collection, we used lycras and summery fabrics to go with cool and laidback style shorts, unisex pants, tops and dresses. Our company branding and website is undergoing production…
Nicole Alvarez LeFranc
I am a freelance graphic and webpage designer as well as a professional artist (painter). I have been working as a full time artist for several years until I decided to enter the world of digital art where I discovered a new passion. I graduated from Parsons the New School of Design with a Bachelors Degree in Fine Arts and then I did a one year artist residency at the Berlin University of the Arts (Universität der Künste Berlin, Germany). Currently, I am completing a Masters in Graphic Design and Web Page Design in Barcelona, Spain. I also work freelance make all types of graphic design projects as well as design web pages. My background as a painter (which I still practice) has given me a sensitivity which I apply skillfully towards all the graphic work that I do.
I was born and raised in Southern California and recently moved to West Palm Beach Florida, where I feel my life has changed for the better. I attended Highland high school in Palmdale California where I graduated from in 2010. Two months later I attended Career Care institute in Lancaster California where I graduated from Dental Assisting School in the fall of 2011. Now in Florida, I would love to continue my dental career and achieve my dream of having my own practice. I am glad to be working in Kowerk and I am certain that the people I meet and the tools that will be offered to me will enrich my professional experience and get me closer to my goals.
