Student Stories – Jean
Jean wanted a career change from his previous job as a primary school teacher. He likes to be creative, social and men’s fashion, and this led him to barbering.
He has particularly enjoyed the final stages of the course where the concentration is working on the details and finishing off your haircuts. Learning a new trade and meeting new people has been a highlight for Jean. ‘Too bad it’s only 9 weeks!’ he says.
Jean is looking to get a job in a nice barber salon after he finishes his course and he might not have long to wait either: ‘I have a try out tomorrow, so I am very excited!’ he tells us.
Finally, we ask him who his barber inspiration is and we get a great answer, ‘Pan [my educator] inspired me the most!’ Jean says.
What Jean listens to when he’s cutting:
Lady Gaga, Kylie, Madonna, Bruno Mars… he even missed a bit of Bieber!
