SCISSORS at the ready, one Grafton girl has won the chance to compete in a World Skills Australia competition in Sydney later this year.

Lauren Sanders, who studies at Coffs Harbour TAFE and receives additional support and training from Natalie Smith of Grafton TAFE campus, will not only cover all aspects of hairdressing at the three-day competition, she's also been chosen by NSW TAFE to feature in a documentary and will be filmed by a camera crew this week in Grafton.

Natalie first met Lauren when she was a Year 11 TVET student. After she started an apprenticeship at Skizza's Hair Design in the King St Arcade, Natalie began offering her mentorship.

Natalie said she had always been impressed by Lauren's organisational skills and her dedicated manner.

"She is a very professional student," she said.

Lauren won a World Skills National Competition (Mid-North Coast region) last year, enabling her to compete in Sydney in August.
