‘Style’ looks at confidence that can come from making even a small change in appearance. Rosangela brings in her experience working in the fashion industry, giving talks on how to adjust style, keeping budget in mind. “It doesn’t matter how old you are, where you come from”, she points out “you can celebrate yourself with style; for example, people from Bangladesh who have their hijab and the henna, have their own unique beautiful style”.
Though the above themes are the key components of the ethos of the workshops delivered, Rosangela also brings in speakers with inspirational stories of success to share, from all walks of life. The music played and images shown also echo the message of hope and encouragement.
Rosangela has magnificently harnessed all her life experiences, positive and negative, to deliver workshops that connect with her community, and though this wasn’t the primary aim, she found she gained confidence within herself by doing so.
