Natalia's Path of becoming a Retoucher
So, when was the time that you pushed through being a student and becoming a working Retoucher; was that during university or was it after university for you?
Yeah, I think it was during university. As I said, I graduated 2015 and I remember registering myself as a self-employed.
In 2014 I also remember. I mean it's great to have amazing friends and me and Shannon were sitting in.
