Seru Beauty Sydney-based beauty business is blossoming. Having completed courses in beauty and retail, beautician Seruwaia offers facials, waxing, manicures and pedicures, body treatments and make-up. She loves building a business that helps women to feel good about themselves. Her best beauty tip? If you’re running late and don’t have time to apply make-up, simply brush on some a bit of blush, and some eyeliner and mascara to the eyes – and voila! A fresh, light face ready for the day.

Seruwaia, or Seru, is originally from Fiji. She arrived in Australia in 2002, looking to provide a better future for herself and her three children and today can’t believe her luck living in the country. She’s started her own business because she wants to support her children now and future, and for them to understand the value of education and hard work. She says, “I can’t believe I get this opportunity; it has made me feel more part of the local community. I feel more confident in my future now.” Her biggest dream is to have her own salon.
