During our Makeup Techniques, Skin Care and Hair Care class during week 3 of our Confidence Academy program, we had a little extra bonus…okay, a big bonus! Dan Viau from CTV’s Live@5 came to our ‘classroom’ to learn what we do during our programs to help our students become more confident young women in the ‘real world’.
While the modelling industry is a tough and often harsh one when it comes to appearances, we work to encourage the girls to have fun with fashion, explore different styles, and feel comfortable being who they truly are when it may not fall into the ‘mainstream’. During every session we’ve run of this program and our Career Development course, we’ve admired such a variety of personal styles that glimmer and shine little by little, week after week. As our students get more excited about expressing themselves through fashion and style, we witness them accepting and getting excited about their peers’ styles, too, and the confidence that each of them develops through this circle is simply wonderful.
We hope to post a video of the segment by Dan Viau at some point, but for now – here’s a teaser shot from our photo session!
