Amena Elaine is new to San Francisco and brings with her an endless load of talent, energy, contagious enthusiasm, appreciation of everything that surrounds her and beauty. She sings, plays the piano and violin and is a whiz at fashion retail with a strong feel for street style. To see her walk through a room is to be engulfed in the feeling that the world is on the right course.
To listen to her talk about her family is a lesson on love. Tip of the iceberg. The youngest of seven children in a multicultural family (French, Haitian and Jamaican), she was loved and pampered by her siblings, taught the value of hard work and family devotion by the example of her ER nurse father and her joyful mother and raised to be independent and at home everywhere she goes. Her love letter? Plural I hope. Mother, father, siblings and the grandmother whose fashion sense she has.
