Have you always wanted to work in Floristry, if not how did floristry come about for you?
It was my mum’s dream job to be a florist and I might have been affected by my mom subconsciously. I love flowers and always have flowers in my home.

How would you describe your floral style?
I don’t like using lots of foliage, so it is flowery, feminine, and delicate.

Who/what are your biggest sources of inspiration (doesn’t have to be a florist)
Joseph Massie, Alyssa Lytle.

What was it about Pearsons School that made you want to study with us?
The main reason was the reputation of Pearsons school and Pearsons Florist. Being one of the most successful florists in Sydney, I believed there must be some reasons behind it. Besides, Pearsons was the only institution that provides 3 month fast track course, and I wanted to start my business as soon as possible.

What did you love about studying the ‘SFL30115 Certificate III in Floristry’ with Pearsons School?
The trainers not only teach us the basic techniques, they also give us information about the latest trend in this industry.

Did you take on any work experience opportunities that were presented to you during your study at Pearsons, and if so what were they?
Yes, I have been working in Pearsons workroom, probably one of the busiest flower shop in Sydney.

Did you make any meaningful connections with fellow students, teachers, or florists during your course?
For sure! I’m still catching up with the fellow students and share our experience about marketing, customer service, flower availability etc.

How has life changed for you since completing the course?
I am now a morning person as I have to wake up early for the market run.

How have you found finding and securing work in the industry?
I can handle customer orders by myself, and the customers are satisfied with the flowers and my creations.

What things have you learnt about floristry since leaving the classroom and working in the industry?
Flower price varies every week, and we should adjust the price accordingly. Everyone has their own aesthetic, if someone does not like your design, it doesn’t mean that it is not good, so don’t deny yourself.
What does the future hold for you?
I wish I can be involved more in events and weddings, and hope my business can be as successful as Pearsons Florist.
