SIya Gwaan


 Who are you? 

Just a young gyal with big visions who likes to be creative. Super
opinionated but my opinions change all the time. Very socially awkward.
I'm just trying to enjoy life progress and vibe with good people.

What is your passion? 

Creating artistic content and building, especially with like-minded people.

Why Yantics?

Unity is so important to me. I wanted to create a place where we could  feed off each other and build a legacy.

What is your Vision for the future?

Success in every way possible and to create positive change.

If you could be a box of cereal what would you be? 

Post Cranberry Almond Crunch. It's my favourite cereal on the planet and I only get to eat it about once every 3 years because nobody sells it and it just pops up randomly at a Honest Ed's or something and then it's gone again. If you know where I can get it in Canada, please let me know. Seriously. You'd be a blessing.
 
 

Shanice williams


Who are you? 

Well to be honest, I like to think of myself as a vibrant and emotional person with an ever-changing  style and personality.  Every month or even other week you'll see me and i'll look  totally different than before. I get bored of myself very quickly and need to always change up my style or look. That's really who I am. 
 What is your passion? 
I'll have to say I have a passion for personal style. I admire people who can put any outfit together not thinking about brands but rather how they want to wear it and style it. I love how I can personally express who I am and my mood through style and it's something that really keeps me going. 

Why Yantics?

From day one when Siya spoke about her project Yantics, I knew it was something I'd love to see come alive. Yantics supports and lines up with exactly what I believe in, in terms of  just having a creative space for youth just like myself to network, showcase and speak on things they genuinely care about. Coming together to support and work as friends with the same visions was a great decision and there is no better way to get Yantics going.
What is your Vision for the future?
To make a difference, accomplish all the projects I want to work on and to have Yantics on the map of one of the best youth sites in T.O.

If you could be a box of cereal what would you be? 

Chocolate Lucky Charms. Mostly because it is my favourite cereal at the moment, I love chocolate and the charms add personality to the cereal....if that make's any sense!

Smyrna wright


Who are you? 

I'm trying to be personal with you guys so i'm not going to  reduce myself to my schooling, and some thesaurus words. Im simply Smyrna, I'm growing and learning with you, very uncertain about who I am but know where I want to be, BRB when I get something tho!

What is your passion? 

It was hard for me to answer this question, only because I never really understood what passion is. I always assumed you had to be passionate about an activity or a hobby. But what I'm passionate about runs deeper than what I like to do on my days off. My passion involves uplifting people, working with marginalized youth, speaking to and on behalf of those who have yet to find their voice, being a listening ear & and a comfort zone for others. In simple terms, I'm passionate about helping others.

Why Yantics?

How can I pass up an opportunity such as Yantics? For youth, By youth is pure GENIUS. There is no better way to connect youth other than to give them a platform to do it themselves. Yantics is giving the youth an opportunity to let their work speak for itself. Yantics is way more than social media and sharing your day-to-day life, it glorifies and recognizes the hard work and accomplishments of youth all while putting it on display for others to see. Now tell me, why not Yantics?

What is your Vision for the future?

Gonna develop the best community youth space this city will ever see!
#WaitOnIt!

If you could be a box of cereal what would you be? 

I think I would want to be Kellogg's All-bran cereal. I just wanna be sexy, healthy & fit forever. Realistically tho, I'm probably going to be cinnamon toast crunch, sweet in every bite ;)
