    Creative Lead
    myGwork
    myGwork’s Creative Lead is artist Cristina Gaviria Beltrán. Her work goes more than being solely engaged in the visual aspect of the company; her personal work is a constant questioning of non -binary visions of sexuality and intimacy in a society which sorrowfully still seeks to undermine them. Therefore, she celebrates the liberty from her own self- exploration and experimentation in it. From there, being able to work at a place like myGwork which precisely act upon that concern through all that which we offer in the corporate world, makes her job position not only a practical approach to the visual language, but a poetic performance of living all that which she reconnoiters: through and by the flesh and the actual acting upon that concern through practical implementations of the desired transformations

    RebelMouse
    Curious individual—hungry for innovation. I believe in generosity, respect and continuous learning. International Business Major - Languages: Spanish/English/Mandarin. My name is Katherine, I was born on October 25, 1994 in the Republic of Panama. I was raised as the daughter of two cultures: Panamanian and Mexican. Even though I was born in Panama, I was always interested in the Asian culture. This is why when I graduated from high school at the age of 18, I decided to study my bachelor in Taiwan and learn the Mandarin as a third language. I have always found making new friends and learning Chinese outside of the classroom very exciting. There is no better experience than exploring a culture and immersing yourself in the unknown. It's the only way I can know my limits and get good memories (and who knows, good stories to tell for later on in life). My original plan was to spend 5 years in Taiwan (one year studying the language and the others my degree in Commerce and International Business). But being so immersed in Asian culture, I knew that the cherry on top of my experience was getting a job and having the experience of what it's like to work in a non-Latino work environment. I currently work in an American company called RebelMouse as an account manager. What I like the most about my job is the diversity of employees it has from different countries, cultures and backgrounds. We are one of the few companies that more than 50% are part of the LGBTQ + community. I feel grateful because since I was a child, with my curiosity and my dream of getting to know different cultures, now RebelMouse is opening those doors for me. Among my future plans are studying a Master in Innovation Technology and visit my colleagues from the company since we are all Remote Workers.
