Kapri Thomas '03
WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED IN
THE WORLD RIGHT NOW? Currently I’m in Los Angeles for work but I reside in Toronto!
WHAT ARE YOU DOING PROFESSIONALLY OR OTHERWISE? I’m a recording artist and songwriter.
WHAT ACHIEVEMENT ARE
YOU MOST PROUD OF?
Most recently, my first single ‘Deeper’ was nominated for the 2018 Juno Award for ‘Dance Recording Of The Year’. I was able to return out west and celebrate with my family at the
Vancouver ceremonies. Ms. Widenmaier even attended the awards to show her support!
WHAT ARE YOU MOST PASSIONATE ABOUT?
I’m most passionate about performing and writing music. I’ve always loved being on stage, so it seemed natural that after Brentwood I would pursue a career in the music industry.
DO YOU HAVE A FAVOURITE QUOTE OR MANTRA?
“Little girls with dreams become women with vision”
WHAT’S NEXT FOR YOU?
I’m looking forward to my release into the U.S market. I’ve been working with producers in NYC & LA and can’t wait to share my latest material.
WHO OR WHAT HAS HAD THE BIGGEST INFLUENCE ON YOUR LIFE TO DATE?
My mom has absolutely had the biggest influence on my life. As a dancer, a choreographer and successful entrepreneur she’s been my main role model. She’s shown me how to navigate through life as a businesswoman and do it with a smile!
WHAT WAS THE LAST NEW
THING YOU TRIED?
Shake Shack in Hollywood; I actually stopped my recording session to chow down.
FAVOURITE BRENTWOOD MEMORY:
When our dance squad competed for the Shield at one of the Greater Victoria dance competitions. We performed a piece I created to ‘Get Your Freak On’ by Missy Elliott and brought the coveted trophy home.
FAVOURITE BRENTWOOD TEACHER(S):
Ms. (Oxton) Blake played an undeniable role in my growth as a dancer and choreographer.
She allowed me to experiment with choreography and introduce new styles into the Brentwood dance curriculum. She taught me to express myself freely and take more chances.
WHERE DO YOU HOPE TO BE
10 YEARS FROM NOW?
I hope to be a fixture in pop culture and establish a brand in the realms of not just music but also fashion. I see myself as contributing something that will impact our culture.
