Yalda was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was professional, timely, and has a keen eye for detail. She went above and beyond, delivering more than expected. I was curious how it would be working with someone outside of the field of education but she was extremely skilled and well versed in all of our needs. I'm grateful for her support and guidance and would not hesitate to recommend Yalda's policy writing services to anyone.

“Yalda and Aldona gave a powerful presentation during a lunch and learn seminar at Foster LLP. Everyone really enjoyed the presentation and thought it was not only informative, but also fun and entertaining as well. Both Yalda’s and Aldona’s personal stories also really added a touching element to the presentation which was very moving. These ladies really know their stuff and provided my colleagues and I with very helpful guidance, tips, and ideas on dressing well and the reasons behind it.”

"Hosting a Style Squared Session in our space was a great experience. The audience was actively engaged and both Yalda and Aldona presented useful, applicable knowledge in a friendly, approachable manner. Both stylists clearly have extensive experience is using fashion and style as more than just the cloth the clothes are made from. Using fashion as a tool to promote wellness, confidence and embracing your best self were ideas that clearly resonated with attendees. The addition of hands on styling, and bringing clothing items from local shops was both a nod to local designers and local retail, as well as a great way to demonstrate current trends and styling tips. Tangible takeaways for attendees are always a win! We would definitely host StyleSquared again!”
