"I choose to start my career in the hairdressing industry because I always had a passion for styling hair. I absolutely loved the thought of meeting new people and connecting with them because we share the same passion.
I started off as an after-school employee, then started my apprenticeship as soon as I was old enough. Attending trade school allowed me to have the flexibility in learning new skills, giving me extra confidence within the workplace. I find learning is most beneficial when you are completing hands-on work because you can see the results and learn from your mistakes.
In 2015 I travelled to London and completed a two-day long hair workshop. I gained a lot of skills and found it rewarding to come back and share what I had learnt with my colleagues. In the future I plan to travel overseas and gain more skills and experience, to implement back in Australia."
