“My name is Melissa Hendricks. I’m a handbag machinist.  I’m 31 and married with two children.

“My son Diego is 10-years-old and my daughter Maxine is 3. I love making handbags. To see the end product and knowing that I made it is something really special.

“What I’ve learnt from my mom is that whatever you do in life, you give it your best and with pride.
 I hope to inspire my children by setting goals for themselves, and to persevere.”
