Students will find out what it means to Be Inspired and to Reach For The Stars. They will learn about Marie Tussaud herself, a pioneering woman of her time, exploring the qualities that make a person a good role model. Students will also be asked to identify the challenges that she faced throughout her life and to use what they learn in the workshop to find their own inspiration and set their own goals.
