I just wanted to say a big thankyou for your time and efforts on Saturday doing the hair and makeup workshop with Felicity. She loved the session, and Bec (her mum) and I are thrilled that you were also able to impart some truly valuable advice on what it means to be a lady and really “put your best foot forward”.
We were all delighted with the results that we could see – obviously you made our girl *gorgeous* (and her dad’s friends made a few jokes about needing to ward off potential boyfriends, hehe!) – but the sincere and time-honoured advice from someone who has lived life, about finding a balance between what’s on the surface and what we build up inside ourselves, was authentic and wonderful, and will hopefully mean that the glow you have given Flic lasts much longer than just a Saturday afternoon.
As Flic grows into her own identity as a woman, and develops the confidence to stay in possession of herself through life’s ups and downs, I am certain she will treasure the memory of your workshop and advice on her 15th birthday. Hopefully you might see more of her at swing dancing some time soon, but either way, thankyou for being such a generous and graceful role model. Your ability to give a little bit of yourself in your work sets you apart, and I’m sure you will continue to make a positive impact on all the lucky young girls you are able to work with. 🙂
Cheers and thanks again,
