Born and raised in Canada. Vanessa began to explore her many talents at a young age. At the age of 14, she began
participating in school plays and singing in choirs. "Singing was a way for me to release my emotions. Music is so relaxing, and it can soothe you no matter what mood you are in." she was quoted saying in a community newspaper in the year 1999. "I never dreamed of being a singer, and I don't see my future headed into that direction."
She attended Humber College where she studied both TV and Film Production and Radio Broadcasting. Still no matter how much she tried to concentrate on school, she kept singing close to her heart. Vanessa particpated in several karaoke contests, where she caught the eye of AJ, who had recently been involved in Toronto based group 'Da Hype'. Together they began hosting several karaoke shows throughout Toronto and surrounding areas. She also got involved hosting several car shows and began looking for a radio gig.

Infact, in 2001 while juggling school and work, she did modelling work and donated most of her money to charities across Ontario. "This by far is the one thing I hold dearly in my life. Helping out others is the biggest reward you can give others and yourself. It keeps you grounded, and you realize just how hard it can be for others".
