Girls, historical stories and inspiration isn’t all about steam engines and aviation!

Teachers, this is a great opportunity to highlight to your students, how determination, hard work and commitment pay off. Learn all about cosmetics queen, Helena Rubenstein and open up discussions about her life and creativity.

  • How did she feel leaving her country and arriving in a strange land?
  • How did her mind work?
  • What steps did she take to make her idea work?
  • How can we all apply this determination today?

These are important thought processes that we need to encourage our generation to develop.

Discover how she fled from Poland to Australia to escape an arranged marriage.  This brave decision offered Helena an opportunity that would lead to her developing a cosmetics empire.  Her knowledge and ideas on beauty creams and treatments enabled her to become a multi-millionaire business entrepreneur.  Helena Rubenstein’s story is both fascinating and inspiring.  It offers great encouragement to all, who have an idea they wish to develop.

  • We can all share this with our Grandmothers and Mothers too. We are often directing much of our inspiring and educational subjects to teachers and students, but we can all take this inspiring, wonderful story about Helena Rubinstein and share it with others.
