If imitation is a form of flattery, then the young ladies of Workshop Houston have found a sincere way to appreciate those they admire. Crystal Green, the Style Shop Coordinator at Workshop Houston, recently asked her students to pick someone they admired and wanted to learn more about. Once the young ladies made their selections, an interesting change took place. With a little creativity and a thrift store shopping spree, these young ladies transformed into the very people they admired.

These young ladies worked hard to make this photo shoot an ultimate success. In addition to creating their costumes and doing research, they had to practice poses and facial expressions to get the shot just right. To say that these students are talented would be an understatement. They used their imagination and resources to successfully execute a powerful project. These images should be a message to us all that we can achieve any goal and be whatever we want to be. To the young ladies of Workshop Houston, thank you for inspiring us all and keep up the great work!
