Who Is Behind?
Stephanie, a serial entrepreneure and part-time singer.
I am Stephanie, a dedicated woman entrepreneur. I was born and grew up in the Ivory Coast, but I arrived in Canada in 2013 to study. I am a web designer and developer of websites for clients. I like to spend my free time singing and dancing like a hobbit while eating sushi or alloco with attieke on the side!
LONCANI came from my experience as a consumer and part-time hairdresser. I noticed that there was no resource to find a professional that knew my hair type. My past clients also struggled to find someone when I was unavailable, so I decided to create LONCANI, not only for me but for our community as well! I sincerely hope to collaborate with you to make it better. “Alone we go faster, together we go further.”
