Meet the Folklore Family! Danielle Nivet
Updated: Dec 18, 2022
On the surface, Danielle Nivet is an unassuming figure. Someone who is small in stature and generally quiet. But wait till she gets to working. Her persona does a complete overhaul and she gets the job done, no matter what.
With over ten (10) years of administrative expertise she has amassed a vast skillset that can be utilized in almost all areas of life. Danielle has her Masters degree with Distinction in Human Resource Management and a Bachelors degree in General Studies with majors in Management of Human Resources and Christian Education. She specialised in training and development while pursuing her Masters degree and believes that the knowledge gained from her education can be applied to almost every aspect of her work.
More than her work experience, she is an avid singer and member of her church, Grace Chapel, a wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt and niece. She balances all these roles with careful organisation. Among other things, she enjoys baking and delighting her family with her sometimes not so successful dishes.
This multifaceted approach to life does not preempt her from focusing on getting the details right. She enjoys being able to get things done. She has a special love for the seemingly mundane tasks of organising information, documents and people. She gets excited and thrives when working behind the scenes to ensure that everything runs as smoothly as possible and making sure that all the ‘T’s are crossed and all the ‘I’s are dotted.
Even though a lot of her professional experience is in administration, she finds a sense of fulfilment when her ‘background work’ impacts others for the better.
This is where working with the Film and Folklore Festival comes in. The Festival seeks to preserve the culture and traditions of Trinidad and Tobago. As a youth in Trinidad, Danielle enjoyed hearing all the folklore stories when she was growing up and would love for her infant son to experience the same enjoyment that she felt just hearing about the different folklore and traditions. Being able to ensure that the Festival runs smoothly, thus ensuring the preservation of the culture and traditions brings her an immense form of joy. She looks forward to this year’s Festival and hopes that in the years to come she will also be able to share it with her family.
