Welcome to my profile, my name is Kanéda H Sylvester-Vuong. I originate from Vietnam, China & Grenada and was born & raised in London. Growing up with neither parents physically around, nor adults or role models that I aspired to be like, I naturally took things into my own hands & took charge of my own career from an extremely young age. Inevitably, I became excessively independent and a highly mature individual. Although, actions will always speak louder than words. Continue reading to see if you can sense the above characteristics through my achievements. My passion for fashion began when I was 8 years old & was told to design my own bridesmaid dress for my auntie's wedding (although I never got to attend, therefore not have a reason for it to be made). Being given that project to submit opened to my mind to countless opportunities, I realised that I was able to draw, I had a great eye for attention and loved the idea of clothing and designing it. Progressing into secondary school I met more characters and through commonly making friends & trying out new things, I discovered that I had a steady hand for makeup & completing beauty treatments like lash extensions. I began to sell strip lashes at school & complete fashion & beauty makeovers for music video's on my weekends & evenings. As most girls do, I love to shop. With my combined interests I began to style, shop and complete makeovers for clients as much as I possibly could after leaving school. Having lived with my grandma & had no financial support I dropped out of college after four months (studying: Business, Geography & Philosophy) & got a job as a Tenancy Manager in a Real Estate company whilst still completing my fashion tasks on the side. At 18 years old I moved out & moved into my own flat, with the flexibility to work when & where ever I need too. I currently have three businesses, one in lash extensions, one in personal styling & shopping, and one in makeup artistry. Business is growing, enough for me to support myself financially. I am now looking for work within the fashion industry to give me stability and a more corporate view of the industry as a whole.Locked Pro Plan feature
As a public figure managing agent I arranged meetings between my client and other growing YouTubers. I ensured that he attended relevant events in order for him to network, gain insight and create content. During my time working with him, within three months he gained circa 1,200 new subscribers. My client has done collaborations with: S.tardom, M Huncho, B Y oung, YB Jefe - all UK Grime & Rap artists.
During my time within this profession I have maintained a 100% customer satisfaction rate and a growing clientele base. I have worked with clients for their prom ceremonies, for video shoos, for music videos and for high end events.
Having started this career quite young, I have been given the chance to improve drastically within myself and my skills. I have also gained a Beauty Therapy & Makeup Level 2. I have worked with numerous models for fashion companies and shoots as well as completed makeup for music videos and more corporate events.
At BOXPARK I was responsible for hosting and organising events which were to take place in the evenings. I hosted music events and poetry nights, as well as organised for artists to perform and present their EP's.
At TOPSHOP I contributed to the up selling of slower selling items, beat all monthly sales targets by 23% - 64% and achieved ‘Assistant of the month award’, three times.
At Jobwise I gained a Business Administration & Management Level 3. In each job I have been required to use such skills.
