Quick cv : Lysandra Chen Owner, Kaya Shoes

cv

FIRST CAR
A BMW 520.

CURRENT CAR
I drive a Harrier 3.0. It is pretty fast.

DREAM CAR
Mercedes G class.

FAV MOVIE/series
The Namesake.

INSPIRED BY
I used to think that success was rooted in wealth, safety, awareness, you know; Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, but I have learnt that real success is making a difference in someone’s life, like the single mothers who I employ to make shoes. It is setting your personal goals and achieving them, no matter what the world thinks of you and knowing what matters. Would you rather die with $30m in assets as your last thought or with the sweet memory of a nose kiss with a loved one on your mind.

FAV GADGET
I like my wifi router, it enables me to use my phone as a remote and use Internet on my TV.
WORST HABIT
Impatience and forgetfulness.

CURRENT JOB
I own Kaya shoes. I design, choose the materials, do some shoe construction, quality control and marketing.

Got where i am by
I used my salary while I was still employed to start the shoe collection. I just kept developing the shoes using customer feedback and creating new designs.

FAV MEAL
Akee and salt fish with fried dumplings, calalloo and plantains.

BEST QUOTE

“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. But the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.” Apple Inc.
