I teach Level 2 Barbering and L2/3 Hairdressing at CPBA.
The theory, practical and interaction with the learners are the things I enjoy the most about teaching.
My area of expertise is Cutting.
The reason I decided to go into education is that I wanted to expand my capabilities and share my knowledge.
In my spare time I like to socialise with friends.
My favourite treatment to have is having my nails painted, as I always get complements on the size and shape of my nails.
