My name is Leon Connell, I'm 20 years old; I was born and raised in St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands (recently moved to Atlanta, GA; willing to travel). I have an entrepreneurial spirit. I graduated from Kaplan University with a BS in Accounting, currently completing my Masters Degree in Management and Leadership. I take critiques well and steadily strive to improve myself. I remain positive and have learned to endure through my life's experiences. I hope to inspire others to want to get to know themselves and experience how beautiful life can be from the inside out. My objective is to utilize my natural talents, academic skills and life's experiences to emerge onto my destined career path. I aspire to accomplish my career goals to impact the world and start new trends.
I have an aspiration to start a clothing line; primarily underwears, t-shirts/tank tops (fitted), and cargo shorts, swim trunks for men then we'll build on that in the future! I know how many pieces I want, I know the fabrics I want, and I have a simple line sheet of how I want my designs to look. I wanted to know if you will be able to help my with this or know of anyone that will be willing to do this? I want to create a sample line to carry to a fashion shows to present my collection! Looking for a mentor in this Industry to take me under their wingand help me make this dream a reality!
I want to be a role model for those young boys who don't have a father figure to look up to; I been there. My mom raised me and my three other siblings by herself and with God we got through it! I want those young boys and men to say, "Hey, look where he came from, but look where he is now!" This is my PASSION!
Have A Blessed Day,
Leon E. Connell
