Welcome Renata Herminio, MGFD Summer Intern!

We’re thrilled to welcome our second brand intern at MGFD who is starting today!  Renata Herminio grew up in South Florida and comes highly recommended by our spring intern Daphne Robboy —  In fact, they’re best friends!  Her diverse background will be a great asset to the team.  She has just been accepted to Miami Ad School to study art direction, having graduated from Emory University with a degree in Sociology, and a minor in Visual Arts.  Born in Lisbon, Portugal, Renata has lived and worked in Johannesburg, South Africa, as well as Mozambique (where her mom and dad are originally from) doing field work for both NGOs and the government.  She is fluent in Spanish and Portuguese – and speaks a bit of Italian, too.  She loves cooking, and we hear has even compiled a handmade volume of family recipes, with another one in-progress.  So cool.  Welcome to the team, Renata!
