Student story

Jeniequa Evinti Quamina studied Music at West Thames College.

After finishing her course, Jeniequa entered TeenStar UK coming 3rd out of 9,000 entries. “It was a big achievement but I wanted more,” she explains.

So Jeniequa started her own music movement ‘Da Upcomin’ for unsigned artists, ventured into fashion designing her own clothing line, Doll Domination, released her first EP called Real and recorded a single with Skyelab Music who have worked with artists such as Madonna.

“Studying at West Thames College I saw my musical abilities improve and it allowed me to explore many aspects of music and its production” Jeniequa recalls.
