It all started when she came to office, with a fragile body and a strong mind there she was asking me to do a image makeover for her . She said she dosen’t know if she can afford my services but she surely needs it . Now i was curious in knowing whY she wants a image makeover, to most of the people it is something that would make them glamorous and i had no doubt in my mind that she was going to ask to suggest her something that would make her fair . NO, she said she is absolutely very proud of her skin tone – hmmmm now it is getting more interesting , i am thinking then why is she here. So this is what she told me that encouraged me to start SMEM initiative .
She grew up in a joint family, dad passed away when she was just a kid and mom works as a domestic help in half dozen houses. But her mom made sure that her daughter gets proper education, so here she is with a degree in nursing but no job yet .
She said she was turned down even before she could face the actual interview, she was asked to go back from the venue because she was not dressed right . And she came to me asking for help and i knew with no job in hand and no income she can pay me my fees . I helped her to get dressed for the interview and i did not charge her anything. Then i thought there would be so many more who would need my help but for how many more i can do it for free and yes for everything we turn to FB and i did exactly that . I asked for help, help me to help others :).
The response was amazing and this was the first meeting we had for Style me !!! Empower me !!!
Helping people radiate outwardly while in pursuit of their dreams means providing emotional support, as well as practical. Knowing what to do is half the battle; the other half is applying what you know to your daily routine.
Empowerment is our goal; therefore teaching how to apply our techniques for themselves is critical. Learning how to take care of yourself is not always learned in one lesson, especially when self-esteem is absent. We therefore offer a place and time to reinforce and review the learning from initial session.
What do we do- we provide a place to return for additional support – whether it be fashion advice, or further counsel on personal care. We feel that by offering a program with continuity to our services, we have a much better chance of restoring a positive self-image.
Image makeover is a very planned process, so go for it if you are committed to yourself
