Who am I?
I am Yolanda Rene Neva Walker and I am 19 years of age living in London/Surrey
What I’ve done in the past?
I have always been a creative person who loved art and fashion and I have been doing that for most of my life. I studied Art & Design, Fashion Illustration, Fashion Design & Textiles throughout my time at sixth form and also in my spare time. Back then, I wanted to become a fashion designer but while studying at Virgo Fidelis Sixth Form, I realised that designing clothes was not my passion and it was not something I wanted to continue studying. I still wanted to be in the fashion industry but I did not know which section would suit me best.
What am I doing now?
I am currently studying Fashion Marketing Full Time at University of East London furthering my knowledge in the Fashion Industry. I also sing part time and I play the piano in my spare time. As I come from a musical family I have a passion for music as well as fashion. I still create art and fashion illustrations in my spare time. My bedroom wall is covered with my drawings.
What I would like to do in the future?
I would like to become an Independent Fashion Stylist that specialises in photo shoots, Music Videos and Award Shows.
