Erica, Chaslife Foundation Skills Centre

Erica completed secondary school and although she lives quite close to the Chaselife Foundation Skills Centre, she didn’t know it existed until her stepfather told her about it. They visited it together and her first impressions were not that positive and she didn’t think that tailoring and design were for her. However, she decided to give it a go and very quickly fell in love with learning how to design and make clothes.

When she completes her course, she intends to find a tailoring apprenticeship so she can gain experience while putting aside savings to set up her own business.
