Confidence opens doors for girls

By NATALIE PEUTnataliep@gladstoneobserver.dyndns.org

SELF confidence and image issues arise for every girl at various stages of her life.

Four girls had the opportunity to boost their confidence with Kathy Corones' deportment training in the past few days. Participant Sian Case said before she joined the program she was a very shy person.

Sian said it was amazing how much she had changed.

'We did a lot of self presentation like makeup, skin care, nails and hair,' she said. 'We even had a chance to jump on the catwalk.

'It is amazing how much confidence, in both talking to people and with the self image I received from the course. It has helped change me as a person.'

PJR modelling's Kathy Corones said the connecting up program by the Gladstone Indigenous Working Group Inc aimed to encourage youths to succeed.

'It encourages them to succeed with their career paths, while strengthening relationships among a number of service providers,' she said.
