    • Congratulations to Margot McCarthy for winning the Community Design category in the Sustainable Tiny Homes Design Competition. Currently studying Interior Design at Kingscliff TAFE, Margot says the Sustainable Tiny Homes Competition was a great opportunity to challenge herself and hone her newly acquired skills working in ARCHICAD an architectural software. "My design concept took into consideration our subtropical environment and intense summer heat," "The 40 square metre layout features open-plan indoor/outdoor living areas with shutters on the windows and walls to maximise cross ventilation airflow and natural light," "I was very shocked yet very pleasantly surprised to be recognised for my design," shares Margot.

    • Sarah-Jane Ryan, Creative Director of Lady Bella Wedding Services, is often described as a creative-hippy soul with an entrepreneurial mindset. These qualities have been a winning combination for the TAFE graduate, who recently took out the Excellence in Personal Services award at the 2016 Tweed Shire Business Excellence Awards. “I always knew I wanted a creative career, but wasn’t entirely sure where my speciality’s lay, so I enrolled to study creative arts at TAFE, to gain a taste of the various discipline areas,” Sarah-Jane recalls. “Throughout this period, my passion for creativity was fierce so I continued to further my creative skills by studying makeup, and which led me to establish Lady Bella Makeup Artistry in 2010.” “A career in the hair and beauty industry is fast paced and incredibly rewarding for a creative human-being. There are endless opportunities to use your skills to enter the wedding industry, film, television, social media, become a salon owner or even an educator. "So follow my lead and invest in yourself, its simple let go of your fears, dangle your feet over the edge, take a few steps back close your eyes and jump into the deep!” encourages Sarah-Jane.
