Speaking at the graduation ceremony, Nirosha Jagodaarachchi, CEO and Technical Director of British Cosmetics commended the service rendered by the trainers at the Academy to help empower the students as fully-fledged professionals. ‘Today you showcase your talent on stage and go out into the world, fully empowered and with your heads held up high,” she told the students.
