We do hands. We do feet. We do shaping. We do filing. We do colour. You name it, we do it and we hope we, Nailed It! So, it should come as no surprise that we love people who NAIL IT in real life. People like Ruby Nates, Brent Lindique, Kiara Nirgin and Nickolous Bauer, who took the negatives and turned them into positives. Big positives, like really big.
These four inspiring go-getters saw a problem and fixed it, they fixed it real good. Yes, they nailed it! In honour of Youth Day we raise our perfectly manicured hands and salute these guys and girls that have inspired change and touched lives in their community and in South Africa. Isn’t that what Youth Day is all about? Hear their stories:
