Practicing my skills

Hello everyone,

I want to say another massive thank you to those who support me - I've now started my Level 3 course! I'm doing my training on massage right now, and next week I will start my spa treatments course. So excited 😆

Thank you so much again for all your support, as well as to the entire Beam team!

I’m in the final stage of my Level 2 Beauty training. We are doing eyelash and eyebrow tinting as well as eyelash perming. Once I've passed this unit I will be all set to start my Level 3 and become fully qualified!

Thank you all for supporting me.

In my uniform doing my homework

I’m now in my last module of the level 2! All my classmates are continuing to the level 3 because it allows you to go into a better job - and I'm hoping to join them 😃 I'm also so excited to study the new modules involved in the level 3.

A massive thank you again to all my supporters; it means so so much to me.

Manicure training!

Over the course of a month and a half, I have made an effort to develop my skills and experience in numerous different ways, both with colleagues and customers.

I have being doing waxing and from now for about a month I will be doing manicure and pedicure. Last week was my first manicure course and it was amazing. I was doing my colleagues nails, my tutor was happy with it and said, "well done hana!!!" 💅

Thanks to my supporters, I'm developing my skills and building my confidence.

My new training clothes and textbook!

I checked my campaign everyday and I found out it had funded online. It was in the morning on a Sunday. When I found it - oh my god! I was so happy I celebrated and I told my sister and my son straight away!

I raised £3,845 from 480 supporters for beautician training.

I started training last week on the 4th April - the campaign funded and I started training in less than a month. I never expected that.

I am feeling really confident that I can do this. We are just starting to learn about waxing! For this part of the training we spend 4 weeks learning and then 2 weeks with clients. I’ve never done anything like that before.

I have met loads of friends through the course - I told them about Beam and they said it was amazing. I now have friends from France, Germany and from all over the world because of this course.

I am learning a skill and making friends - it has deepened my knowledge and there are so many things to learn. It is part time and I will be finished in September as a fully qualified beautician!

The plan is to then work in big hotels - there are so many opportunities for jobs as a beautician. Everything is open to me and I feel so positive about my future.

I was so surprised about Beam - the speed and amount of money, the course and transport - I can now get to my training!

God bless everyone who helped me. When money goes to people who need help it is a blessing. Thank you!

In 5 years time I am going to set up my own salon and I will be one of the supporters for Beam - I’ll be giving back to others who need help because I understand where my money is going!
