"I started taking voice lessons with Karen, as I wanted to speak more confidently and get the best of my natural voice. I enjoyed Karen's dynamic and very friendly personality! As I was interviewing for a global company in Korea, Karen gave me great help with my presentation skills, job interviews, and preparation for the interviews. I got the job after passing a rigorous 5-stage interview process. Apart from the job, I realized the importance of posture and breathing when speaking, and more importantly that opening my mouth and articulating better has a big impact on my voice and my English pronunciation. I also loved the simple exercises to find my natural voice and improve its tone. Thanks, Karen!" Ayoub O. ~ Seoul, South Korea Seoul, South Korea Saturday, August 24th, 2019 4pm-6pm
