A fashion queen on the outside and tomboy on the inside, my name is Kianna Leaa and I welcome you to SKY HIGH CHOOS. I am a student at McGill University in the Faculty of Management pursuing a Bachelor Degree in Marketing, Organizational Behaviour & Information Systems. At the age of sixteen year old I was diagnosed with a concussion from playing basketball. As an active and energetic individual, this was one of the most difficult situations to swallow. I had to stop playing sports (basketball, taekwondo, touch football, soccer etc), going to class, watching my favorite tv shows (The Hills & KUWTK) and reading magazines (PEOPLE, HARPER’S BAZAAR & VOGUE). Basically, I had to stop living my life. When I would attend my classes, I would get dizzy, nauseous and headaches from pushing myself to work so hard (because when I set my mind to something, I always make sure to do it to the best of my abilities). It was at this point in my life that I discovered that designing gowns in my course notebooks, was my best outlet, form of happiness, form of relaxation and hope in overcoming this traumatic situation. It was then that I realized, that it was more than just an outlet, it became a creative passion of mine. Some may say that the obstacles in their life hinder them, but in my case it allowed me to discover and further explore my interest in fashion and all aspects of it.
At the end of the day, we are all different people with different stories to tell and experiences to share. My goal is to share my journey in achieving success in an industry in which I know I belong to. I want to share the good and the bad, true stories about my life, insights on how to leverage the tools you have in your life, to capitalize on the opportunities that come your way and the secrets to attaining the success that you so deeply want to achieve. Follow my journey to learn valuable insights that will help you in reaching your goals.
