Hi, my name is Karenza Elise Hydes-Riley. If your wondering about my Christian Name…. it’s Cornish. As I have a Cornish Family on my Mum’s side, which are very important to her. I’ll turn 20 in March 2023. I live within the City of Sheffield in a Village called Stocksbridge, in the UK.

I am trained in Dancing, at a local Dance School City Limits, that is family run. This a World Class Dance Centre where Darren & his wife Lilia Kopylova, are former winners of BBC’s ‘Strictly Come Dancing’. I learnt Street, Freestyle & Rock ‘n’ Roll. I also, entered dance Competition & did Solo, Pairs & Teams too. I studied Performing Arts at School which was my favourite subject & I was also in my local Amateur Dramatic School, which is called the Steel Valley Beacon Arts, based in Stockbridge.

I have studied at Hillsborough College for 2 years, in Sheffield. Plus, at the weekends & the odd day in the week (when I was not in College), I worked at Costa Coffee Shop as a Barista in Fox Valley where I live, to earn me some spends.

(Then…. The “Lockdown” started 2020)

But, just as the Lockdown started, I managed & was lucky enough to get a Full Time Job with Training Works 4 U. So, when we came out of Lockdown, I started my new Job. I work there as a Funding & Compliance Assistant, within the Company. As I am constantly training, I am also earning myself Achievement Certificate’s along the way. I had to have a DBS checks I am working with Clients sensitive & private information. We help people get Qualifications, to get back into work. I worked there for 2 years.

Now, I have a new job & work Prat-Time at a Company called Eden Futures (Vincent Apartments, based in Rotherham. I work there as a Support Worker. So, I am assisting Vulnerable Adults. Also, I have completed a First Aid Course. I am currently still Training & having to Shadow. Plus, I have Extra & Support Artist jobs so, this works better for me.

I am also signed up to several Modelling Companies which are Face & Star Now & I am available for Jobs etc. Plus, I enter at least one Pageant a year. This is because, if you do Win, then you have to be fully committed to that Title, for at least a year.

Thank you for your time!
