This course has given me the confidence in myself to pursue a career I’ve always dreamed of, helping me get my foot on the ladder into the world of make-up and SFX, giving me opportunities I would have struggled to get by myself. it has also created network links with like-minded women that has grew into beautiful friendships too’ Meg Hankin- Participant 19/20
