Miss Mills, who works at Hair and Beauty for You,
completed her certificate III in hairdressing earlier this
year however, her first two years of the three-year
course were completed during high school years 11 and
“It has been a dream of mine to be a hairdresser,
ever since I was little,” said Miss Mills.
“I wasn’t quite ready to leave school, so I decided to
do the apprenticeship school-based.
“I was trained in foiling, haircuts; I can do everything now.”
Miss Mills is proud of her achievements and is
excited to see what happens next.
“I’m not sure what I want to do yet. I love it here, I
love the clients. I haven’t decided what the next goal
is,” she said.
