In March, the "Florence" Centre summarized the results of the project "I'm Beautiful!" (4th group)
For the first time, 11 women gathered together in January 2018 at the “ Florence Centre”. At that time they did not know that 3 months of training would pass like one day. At the very first meeting of the classes, women were expected to receive new emotions and impressions, expand the circle of friends and, of course, to visit the beauty salon.
In total for this period there were 10 classes on various topics. The topic were related to how to plan free time, positive thinking, family relationships, make-up, body care, how to dress properly and others. Exciting was the theme about love in old age. As the coaches of the project noted, at first it seemed that these questions were of least interest to the participants of the project. But later the participants admitted that after the lesson they realized that there was true love in their life and that it is possible to love at any age.
In the lesson devoted to the planning of free time, it turned out that almost all participants do a lot for society: they help the front, bake bread and collect things for soldiers; help in hospitals, shelters and boarding schools.
One of the most exciting moments of the project was a trip to the training center of beauty salon "Estetic Education". Masters created magic, creating a unique image of each participant. As it turned out, not all women were ready for change. Many people have been accustomed to seeing themselves in the same color and with the same haircut for years. But thanks to the professionalism of the director of the Salon Svetlana Sokolova, for each participant was chosen the image that made her as feminine and elegant.
And memoriable day was when professional photographer Elena Zavyalova-Pryadan made wonderful pictures of each women!
The exam for all participants was a visit to a drama theater. The audience was offered a musical comedy "Betrothal in Seville". In spite of the very bad weather, almost all the participants came to the theatre!
In order to reduce discrimination of elderly people and raise the professional level of social pedadodues-students the Florence Center organized mutual concert of students and women-participants. The event was held in a very cozy and well-equipped university classroom.
Summing up the results of the project, Lyudmila Romanenkova, director of the Florence Centre made a speech. She talked about what was the purpose of the project and how it was conducted. The continuation of the story was a video about the lessons and the results of the transformation of participants. The spectators greeted the photo of each participant with applause!
All participants hugged and warmly thanked the organizers of the project.
"It was like an exciting movie. We came to the project with the purpose of acquiring a new experience, to become more self-confident. Feel not a grandmother, a pensioner, but a woman, whom the surrounding people admire. And today I could say with confidence - everything took place! We are beautiful! "- with such a speech, finishe the meeting one of the participants of the project.
