Today we have a great interview from the talented Rose! Rose is a goal-setting, hardworking, dedicated woman. She has multiple career paths that will all take her very far. We are excited to share her interview today. Check it out! 

As a Nigerian woman, growing up were you ever pressured to pursue a career you were not interested in? If yes, tell us about that experience. If not, tell us how your parents have supported your dreams. 

Yes, they would always tell me to be a nurse or something in the medical field. However, my parents know me well enough to know I’m not going in that direction. They are very supportive in anything I do, so to please them I got my bachelor’s degree and now I’m pursuing what I love and enjoy. Basically, I did my backup plan first.

What made you want to work with students and how was that experience?

I just enjoy educating people no matter their age. It’s a fulfilling experience knowing that someone learned something new because you took the time to help him or her or direct him or her to information. People don’t like ignorance but many aren’t willing to stop and educate someone.

What made you want to pursue cosmetology?

I’ve always had an interest in doing hair. I taught myself multiple skills beginning at the age of 9 or 10. My mom would always have my sisters’ and my hair done by our aunts. So when they were doing our hair, I would always watch and then practice whatever I saw at home on my dolls. Eventually, I started practicing on my own head and things grew from there. Now that I have my bachelor’s degree and my skills for doing hair have grown; it’s time to build my brand.

What are your goals for the next 5 years and how are you working towards those goals?

My goals for the next few years are to build a brand. It will center on hair, make up and beauty. I also want to build a family within building my brand.
