Dear CHAAYS Model Mgt,
I am writing to express my gratitude to Chaays and all the lovely (and talented) people Ian organised to run the Modelling & Drama Course. The Course has improved my daughter's confidence & self esteem and has give her the ability to present herself to a wider and differing audience. It has also enabled her to push through her comfort zone which has had a positive impact on herself and those around her. She also made some lovely friends along the way. As parent I began to look forward to our Saturday morning outing, when I would pick her up and she would openly discuss all the great things she did that day. Your course has been invaluable improving her life skills. Thankyou !
Kind Regards, Jodie K

Dear Ian,
I am grateful that I got the opportunity to have done the Chaays course. Thankyou for all the great sessions. I have gained a lot of confidence from the course, within myself, and also in front of the camera. I often try out different poses using the camera timer. I really enjoyed the photo shoot and the parade and can't wait until I get the opportunity to to do some more of those things. The course has given me a lot of knowledge about the industry and I know the skills I've gained will help me when I go for job interviews in the future.
