Hey there! It's Vyvyan!

I’m a Vietnamese-American born and raised in Portland, Oregon, who become a business owner to challenge the ideals around having a “stable” career. Growing up, I had dreams of wanting to attend art/design school but was pushed by my family towards pursuing science. Near the end of college career (and what I would call the start of my rebellion), I went towards building experience as a social media manager, marketer, web designer, and e-commerce owner. Today, my life purpose is not only to support, educate, and inspire others to dream big,  but to help others reinvent themselves, and break generational trauma.
