Owner/CEO Athena Kavis
Responsibilities: Marketing, Customer Service, Inventory Management + a lot more!
How old are you? I'm 18 years old.
What are some of your passions and hobbies? I enjoy fishing, going to the beach, being out on a boat, and pretty much anything outdoors. I love dancing. I have been a ballet dancer since I was 4, and don't plan on stopping. Originally I planned on professionally dancing, however now I do it more as a hobby and to maintain my skills for modeling. I am also a model and actor with 2 agencies in South Florida. When I have time, I love going to castings and modeling opportunities in the South Florida area. I recently started weight training and fell in love. Before or after work I love lifting and feeling stronger each time. Traveling is another passion of mine. I've been to many states and U.S. cities. My goal is to start traveling outside the U.S. and experiencing different cultures and countries. Overall, I love being healthy, active, and adventurous.
What school do you go to? What are you studying? I go to the University of South Florida. I'm majoring in Marketing with a minor in entrepreneurship.
What is your dream job? Soon I plan on starting my own marketing firm. I'd like to offer marketing plans and services to small and large businesses. I would love having my own firm where I can work with many different clients. I feel I would never get bored because I'd be working on new projects all the time with my diverse range of clients. I also plan to continuously teach ballet to young dancers, and hopefully inspire them to keep dancing!
Favorite city? My favorite city is Duck Key. Located in the Florida Keys, I spent a large part of my childhood there. My parents owned a property there in up until I was 12 years old. I will never get tired of the sunny days, ocean sound, and palm trees covering the island. Life there was so simple, fun, and relaxing. I used to be a dark brown child with blonde hair with those tight braids and beads in my hair! I will always love Duck Key, and it will always have a special place in my heart.
Favorite type of music? This is tough! I will happily listen to all music, and depending on the mood, I'll play a different Genre. I listen to pop, rap, rock, reggae, and country. My all time favorite is country. I love Hank Williams Jr., Chris Stapleton, Jason Aldean, Kenny Chesney, Luke Bryan, Blake Shelton, and pretty much any other famous country singer. I grew up in the country, and country music always takes me back to those good days.
