A TALENTED 17-year-old girl will host a fashion show in support of an organisation that helped her find a home.
Rania Scott faced difficulty finding a place to live when her father moved to Dubai to work.
But with the help of Two Saints, a homeless organisation that advises and homes young people, she now lives with a family in Parham Road, Gosport.
She stays with Sheila Caudery, 50, husband Phil, 50, and Sheila’s daughter Hannah, nine.
And the busy fashion and retail BTEC Highbury College student has been working hard on her sewing machine to make summer dresses and tops to help Two Saints. On Saturday, April 13 Rania will hold a charity fashion show at Christ Church Hall in Stoke Road, Gosport, from 7pm to 9pm. She said she has always been interested in fashion, but had almost chosen to study law before visiting Highbury College.
She said: ‘The show is coming together quite well, we’re going to meet up soon and everyone’s going to try on the clothes.
‘I wanted to do a fashion show because it would be good for my college course.’
She added Two Saints has helped her and others.
She said: ‘I lived up north but I didn’t like it up there so I came back down here. Two Saints helped me find a place to stay and they’ve also helped my friend.
‘It was tough but it was a lot better when I had their support.’
Sheila and husband Phil have been working with the organisation since 2009 and Rania is the sixth person they have housed.
Sheila said: ‘I enjoy helping young people and I realise in Gosport there is a need for homes for young people.’
Rania will begin a course in Fashion at Fareham College in September.
