Interior Academy taught me that the industry was lucrative and diverse, teaching me that you can make of it what you will, and you are in charge of your career. They taught me to respect that every idea is valid and unique. I learned to overcome adversity and how to grow personally as well. It was a wonderful experience. The staff and instructors became my family, instilling a sense of warmth, passion, knowledge, creativity and drive that were unsurpassed by any other. I was given the tools and confidence to successfully reach for my goals and strive further. Thanks to my family at Interior Academy, I graduated with honors, landed an amazing job during my practicum, at one of the premier salons in town and established a confidence and drive that is spinning my career higher and higher. I continue to work at ‚ÄúThe Cutting Lounge‚Äù and am also working as a technical advisor for Joico International, teaching color techniques to contract salons all over BC. Thanks to Interior Academy and the staff for taking a chance on me, and giving all you could give.
