Hair student Leessha Memmi
Nineteen year old Leesha Memmi is set for a life on the ocean waves after completing her hairdressing qualifications at the college’s Metro One campus in the city centre.
Leesha has been offered a job as a hairstylist by Steiners which operates spas on luxury cruise liners sailing all over the world.
Leesha said: “My skills really developed over the three years and I know so much more now. The tutors were really supportive and believed in me all the way and I wouldn’t have had this opportunity if I hadn’t come to the college.
“Working with clients in the Academy salon was a fantastic experience. It really prepares you for work and it made me feel very proud when clients left the salon happy.
“I couldn’t believe it when I was offered my new job and know that the skills and experience I gained at college definitely helped me to get it – I’m really proud that all my hard work has paid off.”
