I left school at 16 and went to Highbury to study Hairdressing. My attendance and motivation at school was pretty bad. I left Highbury after a month as I didn't like the way they taught, I felt as though I was being treated as if I was still at school. I went on to try different training providers within the Portsmouth area but didn't find them much helpful or welcoming.

After feeling demotivated by all of the above, Haha Academy had opened in Portsmouth. I went in for a informal interview where I discussed my career options and goals. I found everyone at Haha very helpful and understanding.

Haha helped me find my salon where I could finally start my apprenticeship and achieve what I had longed to do for such a long time. Since being at Haha my attendance has improved immensely I attend the academy every week, my motivation for working and learning a new skill has helped me meet my personal goals. I have completed my level 2 in womens hairdressing and currently working towards finishing my level 3 in womens hairdressing, aswell as taking on a level 2 barbering course which I do in my own time at Haha.

I am now working at Haha as a junior stylist running a column. My column involves colouring, cutting, styling, putting hair up and working on reception. I am working hard on building my column using social media w The Academy always has various courses running colour correction
