I started my job as a barber in 2005, when I was 19, and I’ve always been interested in the barbershop.
When I moved to Sydney in 2007, I was still in my 20s and had been studying medicine.
After I graduated, I went into the industry, but my love for it didn’t stop there.
I went on to become a barbers’ assistant and eventually a bariatric surgeon.
Barbers are like my family and it’s something I always wanted to do.
I have my own blog and a Facebook page and I write articles on a daily basis about the industry.
I don’t go out much, so when I do, I always dress like I’m a barbie.
My biggest challenge in my time as a barmaid has been getting my hair cut.
It’s been difficult because I’ve only ever had to do it once, when my barber was diagnosed with cancer.
I think I’ve had the worst haircut in my life.
Barbering has always been about giving people something to feel good about and having fun.
It can be a very stressful and demanding job, and there are always challenges with health.
I’m really lucky that I’ve been able to live my dream and work in a world that has given me so much.
I’ve lived with anxiety, depression, and panic attacks and I had a nervous breakdown at my age.
I thought I was dead and I’m still alive.
I had two of my friends die in my teens.
I also struggled with mental health issues and was prescribed drugs, such as Adderall, which was prescribed to help me cope.
My family was worried when I wasn’t going to be able to make it to work each day.
I tried everything I could to manage the stress, but ultimately, I just stopped.
I was never really able to get on top of my life and work with my own issues.
I still struggle to make ends meet, and it still doesn’t feel like enough.
I always want to go back to my roots and take care of my barbers.
I can’t stop myself from getting out and doing what I love, which is to give people something that they can feel good for.
