Kamynina’s dad worked in a bank, and her mother was a teacher, so the girl grew up responsible and disciplined. In the middle classes, Sveta could not boast of harmony, but in the senior classes she pulled herself together, went on a diet and changed. However, she did it not for the sake of her acting career.
Parents taught their daughter to be independent, so at 16 she already worked part-time in order to have pocket money for entertainment. Considering that English was easy for the girl, she was engaged in tutoring with children. In addition, Svetlana was a waitress in a cafe and a cleaner for a glass artist.
After the ninth grade, the girl entered the Moscow School at the Central Bank of the Russian Federation, after which they were taken to the Economic Institute immediately for the third year. Kamynina even managed to work in her profession before she realized that she wanted more and went to preparatory courses at VGIK.
