Before becoming an Entrepreneur, Anaya Kamara studied IT, and Information Systems Development to be précised, with over 10 years of experience in the industry with a Masters’s degree in Information Systems Development & Mathematics. Specialized in databases and have worked for Housing associations, London Borough of Camden, and Hackney. Anaya was also doing network marketing on the side with a bit of hairdressing as a hobby since she is very creative and like to take on challenges. In January 2006, Anaya traveled to Sierra Leone for an introduction as her boyfriend at the time asked for a hand in marriage. Things became challenging for Anaya after a fatal accident and losing her Dad.

Since then Anaya suffered shock, memory loss, pain, severe trauma, depression, stress, a broken heart, broken engagement, a broken ankle, and self-pity, to name a few. It took her the first 2 years not able to discover herself and she was also very broke. “What kept me going were constant prayers, good friends, and neighbors that check on me daily and weekly,” she said. Anaya recovered after she just had her quiet time and a little voice inside her said snap out of it fast and turn your pain to gain, it won’t be easy but you will conquer. she became so determined and got very busy and very serious in the word of God.

Ever since Anaya began using her hairdressing skills to keep her mind focused and in so doing, it births out Anaya Hair & Beauty. She gained a lot of clients from all nations and this pushed her to go back to college and
Asian hair. She later studied Beauty Therapy and Gler 50&1Qin

Anaya’s story is an incredible one that young people should learn from.
