尽管何小姐现在已经非常成功，但她也经历了很多艰苦的努力，付出了很多心血、汗水和泪水，才能获得如今的成就。 由于她年纪较大才开始发展形象顾问的职业生涯，因此受到很多的批评和歧视，因为许多人认为她年纪太大了，无法开创自己的职业生涯，这些看法来源于形象顾问这个职业通常会在年轻期，年龄大约30岁时开始，但她已没有如他们般的青春了。尽管她面对着别人对她大器晚成的批评，但通过与她的助手 Jessica Lu 的合作，她也能够将自己的职业生涯发挥到极致。她们最近还与槟州政府携手合作举办了一场女性会议 — Women Impact Makers Conference — 以建立更大、更有影响力的规模，以达到州级的形象顾问的地位，并进行多次一对一的客户会议。
On the 12th of August 2022, Han Chiang High School has invited a professional image consultant over to the school to host a talk for the female students of Han Chiang High School on how to present themselves, help them to improve their image as well as give them the advice to help them in their confidence and to be able to present themselves independently.
He Guo En, the professional image consultant that was invited to have a talk in the school stated that she was grateful to be invited to present a talk and share her experiences with our students and be able to help students to construct themselves as they are still young and have their youth. She brought up her past where she wasn’t able to invest in her image and couldn’t present herself well which led to her being unable to get jobs. Although she has straight As as a student, not many companies wanted to hire her due to her imagery. She slowly realised how important it is to invest in her image thus leading her on learning to invest in her self-image to be more self-sufficient and confident in presenting herself, bringing her to where she is now – a well-known image consultant with thousands of customers from all across the globe asking her for help in constructing their self-image and finding out who they truly are.
She thrives to help people and to be able to help younger people like high-schoolers in presenting themselves more professionally and neatly as well as having confident body language both externally and internally, also expressing to be able to have more talk sessions in many other schools. Her quote says,” The earlier you invest, the better rewards you reap when you grow older.” She believes that establishing an image at a young is better than establishing it when you’re older as you still have youth and it is easier for one to do so as well. If you think it will take too much time or it would be hard to take care of yourself on every part of your body, she advices you to focus on the face as most people judge your face: skin, eyes, lips, nose etc. Therefore, she hopes the female students of HCHS were able to learn something from the session, something new and a change of mindset.
Behind the Scenes
Though she is extremely successful now, it took a lot of hard work as well as blood, sweat and tears for her to arrive where she is now. As she started her career of being an image consultant at an older age, she was criticized and looked down upon as many think that she is too old and wouldn’t be able to start her career because being an image consultant usually starts at the age of around 30 where one still has their youth, but she didn’t. Despite the fact that she faced criticism from others and her past, she was able to extend her career to the fullest as well by working alongside her assistant, Jessica Lu Hooi Sin, recently hosting a women’s conference – Women Impact Makers Conference – joining hands with the Penang state government, collaborating and joining hands to make a bigger and more impactful scale, reaching state levels as an image consultant with many one-to-one customer sessions.
The talk she gave was full of inspiring, encouraging and passionate words that shook students’ minds and raised their confidence in so. She advices students to follow their hearts and minds, do not change themselves for other people. If they truly would want to change for themselves, only then will the magic take place and truly change. Not only did the talk show students paths of being confident and aspiring, but it also teaches them lessons on how to bring themselves out more and to be aware of their own surroundings, not easily allowing anyone to take advantage of them although they are teenagers.
The principal of Han Chiang High School was more than grateful to be able to invite such inspiring and model roles for her students and also be able to have someone to lend a helping hand in helping her educate and teach her students. She voiced that she takes all her students as if they were her children, hoping that they can aspire and become great adults that she can be proud of and look back on one day.
