I’m Viven, the founder and CEO of IZNEET.
When I was 9 years old I was told I was fat for the first time in my life. This critical insight by my 79 year old grandmother at the time was the source of insecurity, hatred and deep sadness that followed me for the next 20 years. (God rest her soul). I didn’t realize it until I was 21 and breaking down in tears every single night that this harsh criticism of a 9 year old child by my grandma planted a seed that would grow into a vicious plant of self-hatred inside of me. It wasn’t until I was 29 years old and I was getting ready to go on my first date, (yes I had my first date at 29) and decided to wear a pair of lashes that my sister gave that everything changed.
I felt reborn, I felt confident, I felt alive, I felt dare I say it…sexy for the first time in my life. I cringe now looking back it but I can honestly say a pair of lashes changed my life. That first date turned into a second, turned into a 3rd and I am not sitting beside the love my life, my pet dog, and feeding a 3 year old as I write this.
IZNEET was born during that first date. I wanted girls everywhere to pick up a pair of lashes and feel the same way I did that night. I want girls everywhere who felt the pain I did all those years to know that IZNEET is here for you, more so, that We’re Here For You.
