Nicole Caccamo is making her mark on some of television’s best-known faces.
The Chisholm Institute Diploma of Screen and Media student is already landing freelance work with the likes of The Footy Show, The Block, singer Kate Ceberano and AFL Women’s League players.
The Berwick 20-year-old was announced as a Youth Enterprise Award nominee at the Greater Dandenong Chamber of Commerce Business Awards breakfast at Sandhurst on Wednesday 18 October.
Nicole hopes to forge a career as a freelance make-up artist in film, television and events and has already started her own business.
A course unit on doing just that was a huge help.
She told the breakfast that she’d be working on a Yarra Trams advertisement that weekend.
“I’ve always been a really artistic person,” she said.
“This is another creative outlet for me.
“I’ve always loved make-up.”
Nicole said she’d been offered another job on a short film but had to turn it down to focus on her studies.
“Hopefully that leads to bigger things as well,” she said.
In five years she’d like to be employing others in her small business and “doing more creative work, not just freelance clients”.
She said she gave her studies 110 per cent and was thrilled to be recognised for her efforts.
“I’d still be doing the work that I do even if I wasn’t up here,” she said.
The Greater Dandenong Chamber of Commerce Business Awards winners will be announced at the Atura Hotel in Eumemmerring from 6.30pm to 9.30pm on Wednesday 22 November.
