Testimonials


Our week started with a stranger who then became a friend
Someone with raw passion. And the talent that has no end.
She pulled as together with her confidence and power.
We were amazed at her beauty. It bloomed like a flower.
She’s touched our hearts and opened our eyes.
And helped us realize that true beauty lies inside.
We want to thank you for your wisdom and charm.
Not to mention your husband who’s on your arm.
You are amazing, and sweet and we’re going to miss you.
But please don’t cry we have no tissue.
So to wrap this up we have one small gift.
It’s almost as colourful and beautiful as you.
So one more time a great thank you.
And a round of applause to Maggie.

We really enjoyed the presentations - great to hear and see young people speaking out! Has got me thinking. I would love to see this type of event out on the road - do you have access to a bus?! Best of luck + great work.

The presentations were really quite awesome! The issues you addressed through the Photography were highlighted pretty well and really got me thinking about them too. Although I came from a more rural area, I do see some of the same issues coming up, and is really good that you guys are bringing them to light through such a creative medium. Great job guys!

Such courses should be available at schools. Great achievement xxx

Woodley Fashion Course

I LOVED the whole Course! It was amazing how much it helped me and still does. The content was fitting and very helpful to me, especially skin care and nail care and catwalk, posture training because I used to always slouch and now even though I don't walk as confident as others (normal walking) I walk with my head up which is a big improvement. I really enjoyed the fashion show and still want to do it again. Maggie, I want to say a MASSIVE thank you for everything you have done for me. You have helped change my life and change it for better and you are like proud mother who cares about me + who I can turn to, even on matters outside of modelling, I think you are incredible and so beautiful in every way. I am honoured to have met you and spent time with you. Your mere presence is inspiring and comforting. I hope I make you proud one. Words can't thank you enough and no words can describe how much your presence in my life truly means to me. I'm eternally grateful. And thank you Peter, you are amazing too always know how to make me laugh. Thank you for helping make my experience an enjoyable one. I hope to see you both in the future, I'll come back to you when I've landed my dream job with the pointers you gave me. I hope to stay in touch via modelling before that too. I really wish all 3 courses were permanent, they help me so much each week!
Thank you with all my heart, Maggie you really are what is defined as a hero! A beautiful one.
Oh, and thank you Peter for all the work you put in on the fashion show: carpet, screens, layout etc. Your hard work wasn't unnoticed. I hope Mapis go on to your wonderful work for many years to come and that you're able to help many more young people to believe in themselves and see their beauty. Any way to be a part of that, let me know I'd be happy to help.
Thank you Maggie so very much, stay beautiful.
Lots of love

Sophie has really enjoyed the course and it has helped her start to improve her own capabilities. The support that it offers to less confident people is something that is a fresh approach and thanks to Maggie & everyone is involved for their commitment.

...and finally may give you and Peter a big THANK YOU for making Saturday a very special day for the girls & me! I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and can't wait for the next part of the course :)

Maggie has been an inspiration to all of the young people that have attended the fashion course (including me!).
I have enjoyed attending every session + have learnt loads. I have witnessed the group grow + blossom with confidence to the point that they all delivered a fantastic fashion show/ catwalk. This is something that myself + my girls didn't realise to be possible. I'm sure that we will all feel 100% confident to do similar event in the future if asked again. Thank you so much Maggie + Peter

I personally found the beauty and catwalk course extremely helpful. I find myself holding my head higher and generally more confident. Because of this I think and have found I'm more willing to take a chance and do something courageous and I'm extremely thankful for this.

'I recently worked in partnership with Mapis Modelling to deliver one of our Prince's Trust Get Started programmes. We worked with unemployed people in Mid Sussex to try to raise their confidence and self esteem. The young people engaged with the programme almost immediately and responded really well to Maggie's delivery style. During the course each participant blossomed and by the end of the programme they had so much more confidence. The feedback they gave was excellent and each one said that they wouldn't hesitate in recommending the course to their friends. It was a very positive experience for everyone involved and I look forward to having the opportunity to work with Maggie and Peter again.'

I had a fantastic time on the course and I am sure that this must have shown in my willingness to 'get stuck in' and help on all levels. I also learnt and have taken away alot with me from the course which I now use all the time i.e. clothes for my body shape, beauty secrets.

Summer School

I want to thank you for giving my daughters such a wonderful week on the above course. They thoroughly enjoyed themselves and learnt a lot; your support and encouragement was really superb, especially when they were trying new and different activities. Their comments about you as a teacher were superb, the girls trust you implicitly and I know would feel comfortable talking to you about anything. You inspired them to really work hard, and also to value themselves no matter what, and in all life situations. This kind of personal development, whilst engaging the girls in something that interests them, is very rare and special.

I feel that you have put together a programme that is very relevant to young women’s lives, and will be a useful experience for them in their future lives. The partners you used were all very professional, and struck exactly the right note in content and delivery. I am delighted with how well the week went for everyone, given that not all the girls who attended are destined for the catwalk. They truly discovered themselves.
