Nigeria Parker Capstone
I would like to start off by saying that I do not have a passion, a dream, nor something that my heart is set on pursuing in life. Though I am good at many things there is only one thing that I can honestly say I would never get tired of, that would be doing hair. I getting better at it but before I show you my work I want you to know that I try my best at everything I do. I cannot work in the shop, the money that I made went to a foster care system called Turning Points for Children.
For my project I made a hair portfolio. People would come to the shop and get their hair done by me. I learned a lot about doing hair while working in the shop. I met a lot of new people and I learned the ways of business. This experience is helping me decide on what I want to do with my life. My final project is allowing me to look back on the work that I have done and improve on it. The project is also showing me whether I am either good or bad and what I can do better.
