We look forward to sharing this win with our talented members who have helped shape StarNow and make it the success it is today."
Rachel Soderstrom wins Real to Reel Everyday Glamour Workshop
8 Jul 2010
"My reason for choosing Rachel, is she's a young mum who's been putting all her time and effort into her children over the past years and hadn't had much time for herself. I believe with a few tips on how to up-date her clothes and make-up Rachel would look fabulous, if she was intending to return to the workforce sometime soon, the added confidence boost would help her immensely in her job search. Rachel says she's also an actress, she believes the added confidence will also greatly improve her chances at winning auditions" Michelle Quin.
