Vanessa was a professional makeup artist who became fascinated by the psychology of customer care and business management – a passion that inspired her to enrol at USC.
In 2017, she received a University Medal for outstanding academic results in her Bachelor of Social Science (Psychology).
“Before I enrolled at USC, I had a diploma of makeup and was manager of a photography studio. This led to my interest in the psychological aspects of systems, customer care, management and leadership," she said.
“My USC degree has since helped with my own business too. Psychology is the kind of degree that you can apply to all aspects of life, in terms of understanding where people are coming from and what their individual stories are.”
