Colinton

Morris

I’m an apprentice hairdresser .I enjoy the work very much .I’m gaining confidence that I never had at school .I remember teachers to look down on jobs like hairdressing .They thought that only girls who were a bit dim went in for hairdressing, but I’m not dim at all .If I work hard in the salon and get all my certificates, if I save hard, in a few years I could start my own business, and I’d be earning five times as much as those old bags at school!
