Irini Twyford
Current AACDS Student


Meet Irini Twyford - Current AACDS Student 

"My name is Irini Twyford and I'm currently studying the Graduate Diploma of Dermal Therapies. My journey in this industry started when I studied the Diploma of Beauty Therapy at TAFE. I knew this was my stepping-stone into the future I wanted. After a few struggles when I left TAFE, I fell out of the industry for 4 years and did some travelling including living in Greece with my family. When I came back, I needed something new in my life. This is when I found AACDS!

After applying and being accepted, I was beyond happy. Don't get me wrong, it was tough to go from living under almost no rules to a structured learning environment, but it's all worth it to achieve my career goals. I remind myself of this to keep motivated when the stress gets too much. I have now completed my first semester and about to embark on the second semester. The information I received, my lecturers Ekta and Jacquie and all the girls I have met along the way have completely exceeded my expectations!

Whilst studying in the first semester, I was also a client of Laser Clinics Australia Joondalup. Due to my background in beauty and the qualification I'm learning, I managed to turn my client role into a part-time role as an employee at this clinic. Due to the information I've learnt at AACDS, I regained my confidence to enter the beauty industry, but this time as a Dermal Therapist with an immense amount of eagerness. AACDS is an amazing place to excel your knowledge and career and I'm so happy I stumbled across it online.

Thank you for reading my story and here's to a fabulous 2020."
