Designing their perfect careers

BRILEA Moore, from Coonamble and Lori Press, from Condobolin, recently spent four action-packed days at Whitehouse Institute of Design, Surrey Hills assisting with preparations for the 2012 graduate exhibition and parade.

The two students were introduced to the work experience under the University of NSW ASPIRE program. ASPIRE brought students from Coonamble and Condobolin High Schools to Sydney to complete one week work experience while living on campus at UNSW.

"We came on the busiest but most exciting week," Lori said.

"I am so glad I have been given this opportunity to work at such a successful institute and I would like to thank Whitehouse for allowing us to come here and experience everything that we have... I've been inspired."

Brilea said after four days at Whitehouse the students had, "seen fashion parades, what happens back stage, behind the scenes, and what everyone has to organise".

She said the experience included helping with the set up for the events the girls worked with staff in a variety of workplace roles.

"The staff [were] very welcoming... motivated and focused nonstop," Brilea said.

"I would definitely like to become what I dream of; I want to be able to do this in my future, I want to have a career that is stable, I want to be proud of my achievements one day.

"I would like the opportunity to become a fashion designer, interior designer or a graphic designer. "
