Paper Dolls Modeling and Finishing School

Paper Dolls

Paper Dolls is a Modeling and Finishing School founded in 2012; we train young ladies and men who aspire to be models, and we are consultants to those who would like to reach their full potential in the corporate environment. As young women, we feel that there is a need for guidance in today’s society as it is complex, and full of challenges. We have received numerous requests on the subject of mentorship, for this reason we have compiled courses which cover all essential skills.

In 2013 we expanded our business in terms of offering Life and Business Coaching/Workshops. The experience we have on a personal capacity allows us to relate to the majority of youth and entrepreneurs. We have achieved a great network of people through hard work, and branding ourselves, and have been fortunate enough to meet Robert Gumede, Graham Stedman, and George Ross; we have come to maintain a good relationship. We had the honor of being invited to the Trump Towers in New York, and privileged to have dined with George Ross (Executive Vice President and Senior Counsel of the Trump Organization) on more than one occasion.
