Growing up homeless, Vicky did not have an easy childhood. She was forced to drop out of school, which made it difficult to find work as a young adult. Vicky learned the basics of knitting in a free training that was offered by a local NGO and she started a small business making sweaters. Now a part of KNOWN SUPPLY, she is planning on leveraging the knit and business training to transform her fledgling business into a thriving one.

Dear Lakica Vicky,
Thank you for your beautiful work making my lovely hat. It is so well made and I enjoyed looking you up and learning about your life and goals. Your picture is beautiful. I wish you every happiness and hope you are close to getting the shelter you wanted your family to live in. I live in Canada and work as a midwife helping pregnant women birth their babies.

Hello Lakica!

I wanted to thank you so much for your beautiful knitted hat that I bought for my little girl. Sadly it will no longer fit her when winter comes again, but she still carries it around the house with her. She loves hanging on to the pom pom top!

Thank You!

Ms Lakica Vicky,

Last November I received a cozy red beanie with your name on it. And, when I learned that I could thank you - well yahoo, here I am! So thank you, Lakica. Thank you for the beanie. It's kept me warm through a cold winter and it wouldn't have been easy without it.

Have a happy new years.
