Albion Park High School - Testimonial

"Sharna, along with her team of stylists, beauticians and hairdressers, provide a great day of activities and workshops that engage our students and encourage them to think a little differently about their personal image and presentation. The activities are interactive and practical and prepare students for stepping out into the world of work. The whole program provides a worthwhile experience for our students."

"I liked the EDGE workshop because it was a practical activity. We actually got to try things to fully understand better what the presenters were trying to teach us. The presenters were all very lovely and welcoming and I learnt how to improve my online settings to protect my privacy."
