CREDENTIALS

SIERRA HOLMES, MULTI SKILLED GINJA NINJA

HI! I am a design student in the IDEA program at Capilano University. I am currently finishing my second of four years.  I am, by nature, a people person. I am an excellent listener, learn quickly and have always enjoyed helping people.

I have also been involved in the Vancouver fashion industry for 5 years. I have built many connections and know that I want to pursue a career where I can merge my love for fashion, adventure, design, and illustration. I have styled and created concepts for multiple photo shoots and know that this is something I thoroughly enjoy. The idea of merging fashion with illustration and design excites me.

As well, I have worked in the restaurant industry for 4 years, both as a host and then a server. I love how everyday is an opportunity to engage, learn, deal with new challenges, and help shape a positive experience for guests. Through my experience in the industry I have developed my interpersonal skills and I am able to communicate effectively with diverse personalities. I have also learned to pay attention to detail, efficiently manage many guests at once, work quickly and efficiently, and complete many tasks to maintain cleanliness in a restaurant.

My skills are all over the place and I am very agile!

If you are looking for someone who is energetic, interested in fashion, does illustration and design, is passionate, artistic, and learns quickly, look no further! I am here to the rescue!
