Studying at the College was a great learning curve. The tutors were excellent and an important part of me learning the trade and becoming more confident. I always felt I had to pursue a career in hair and beauty or childcare because I’m a girl. I’ve learnt you don’t have to follow these social stigmas; you can do whatever you want to do.
