“We had the pleasure of having Zara as a host for our fundraiser fashion show in 2018. We got Zara at the last minute but she was extremely professional and got acquainted with the guests speakers very quickly.
Zara was witty and entertaining. Our guests had nothing but praise for our host. We would love to ask Zara to host our future events.”
