About Tenneka Richards
A Yorkshire lass (lady) who has been living in London of over 12 years, with a love for the Caribbean. I fell in love with the Caribbean from a very young age going on annual vacations with my mother and father to their parent’s home islands Antigua & Barbuda and St. Kitts & Nevis. The food; culture; climate & people are amazing, especially the carnivals. If you have not been to a Caribbean island during their carnival season, you are missing out!
Meeting entrepreneurs and small business owners on a daily basis through my full time employment inspired me to follow through my own business idea, to launch a niche premium/high-end swimwear range for women in summer 2016.
Ten&Lee’s long term goals are to help the elder generation in the Caribbean with free medical care & to encourage more tourism to the Caribbean islands.
