Venia was born and raised in Ouanaminthe with her four sisters and both parents. She grew up in a Christian home, and among the things that she has learned in her time with Empowered is how to focus her prayer. Empowered has also fostered and grown her desire for business which began when she was still at university. She just graduated her first year at EI in the Spring of 2022, and will begin her second year in the Fall.
