Rowena Alissa Kennett (born 13 August 1979, Singapore) is a former MTV VJ in Thailand.

At the age of three the family moved to Thailand and Kennett became a child model doing photo shoots, shows and various television commercials. At age thirteen, she started professional modeling on Fash Show, a weekly program showcasing new designs, models and designers. She soon grew tired of the modeling scene and landed her first TV role on a Thai soap opera called Puying 101% Junior.

In 1996, she joined Joey Boy, Thailand's biggest hip-hop star, as a backup singer and dancer. She toured with the group for the album 'Fun Fun Fun' before jetting off to London to continue her studies.

Kennett studied at the London College of Printing (now known as The London College of Communication) to study Film and Media Production. She once again returned to Thailand.

In 2003, she joined MTV Thailand as a VJ hosting several daily live shows and taped shows, the most notable ones being MTV POP and MTV THE CREAM. She was also host of UBC Inside News, an entertainment news programme on UBC Inside Channel 17. Soon after joining MTV she returned to the world of TV Dramas starring in several Thai soap operas, her most famous role being 'Michelle', a cheerleader who ultimately joins a girl band and makes it big.

Kennett is currently a Director at St. George's International School, a British Primary School in Bangkok.
