When I started the program I didn't have a job because the economy was already going down. I felt horrible about myself and thought I was never going to start my career and get my life going. I got into the program just because I thought it would give me some extra income that was more than needed and would give something to do other than sit around at home wasting time.

The program really opened the doors to my hairdressing career, I've wanted to be a hairdresser ever since I was young and had plans of going to school for it. I got accepted to Marvel College in Red Deer and was excited but never really knew how I was going to get there. With Richards help I set my goals and worked hard at trying to figure out what I needed to do to get where I wanted to be.

I'm now working as an apprentice at Bevan Scott Salon here in Drumheller and am enjoying every minute of it. I have my future goals set and am working on my short term goals to get to Red Deer and start school. This all would never had happened is this incredibly happy bald man didn't ask me to join the course. I'm happy and know that I can do it as long as I persevere and keep an open mind.

Thank you so much for getting me back on track.
