Parents Pending

My name is Joanne D’Juran and my husband and I designed “skins” for children’s lunch kits to increase their capacity and functionality.

D’Juran is an Eastern European name. I was born a Look Kong. But, you know, when women get married, they give away their identity.

My significant other is Clayton. We have two boys, two girls. An eight-year-old, Kyle. Ross is five. Leah is three and my youngest, Jess, is a year. No more, that’s it! Four children is four stressful times packing lunch kits a day.

I’m not churchgoing. Both my wives are Catholic. And I’m a Methodist. So that has been my out.

My name is Richard Arrindell and I am a Vietnam veteran. I was a US Marine in Da Nang.

I would say I’m from either Forres Reserve or San Fernando. But I’m definitely

a South boy.

I went to St Peter’s, Forres Reserve then Pointe-a-Pierre, Mt St Benedict, RC Boys Catholic and St Benedict’s College, La Romaine. None of which I learned a bloody thing at!
