Last week our Director, Sevine Forster, had the pleasure of attending the University of the Sunshine Coast’s 20th Year Anniversary and Unveiling of the Graduate Walk. It’s no Hollywood star (yet) but Sevine’s name was set in stone at the University where she completed a degree in Biomedical Science back in 2010. Being a first generation graduate, this event was a real honour for Sevine to reflect on just how far she has come in her career. In the short time of 14 years, Sevine has graduated from 3 Beauty Therapy Diplomas, worked on Mayfair, London for 2 years, attained a Bachelors in Biomedical Science and for the past 5 years has been successfully managing her own business, Realskin Clinic based on Racecourse Road, Brisbane. Sevine says her success is due to, “My burning desire for more knowledge, focus and hard work.” She has applied all the knowledge and experiences from these milestones to structure her business model in a way that embraces her highest values. Her mission with her business is to provide a personalised service, with realistic and honest advice for her clients’ skin needs. Her professional understanding means that her team will listen to their clients carefully, and always deliver the best solution without confusing jargon. Reflecting on her High School days, Sevine never imagined she would have achieved so much from her career in such a short time. She explains how she was always a high achiever but needed to discover her true passion before she could apply her drive. From her years of study, it became apparent that her passion for skin and helping her clients achieve their skin goals would be what she does best. Sevine’s top tips for pushing the boundaries are to stay focused (have an open mind, be flexible and adaptive to new experiences and ideas), support yourself (even when you think no one can support you, learn to support yourself), hard work (do what it takes) and be grateful (have a gratitude attitude, and you will always win). This is your journey, it’s as unique as your finger print, enjoy the path.
