Elishia Daley, 24 from Liverpool completed her NVQ level 2 in hairdressing earlier this month. Finishing the year long course has been a huge achievement for Elishia who admitted she used to cry when she first started, “I was so nervous and terrified in case I couldn’t do it! I always thought I would ruin people’s hair”. Elishia who has worked amazingly well with Voodou’s city centre Training Academy on Stanley Street has seen a huge change in her everyday confidence within the past 12 months. “I was always so nervous around people I didn’t know and rarely left the house – I would never in a million years go into Primark on my own like I do now. The course has completely changed me and brought me on as a person in leaps and bounds. I am amazingly proud of my achievement.
“Steph Potter one of the trainers at Voodou’s Academy is amazing! I can not begin to tell you how fantastic she has been with me. Steph is someone who’s changed my life and I will always consider her a friend!”
Elishia hopes to go on to be a session stylist working on catwalks in the future. “Originally I wanted to do make-up as I have had an NVQ in beauty before I started at Voodou. Since getting my hairdressing qualification I have completely changed my career plan and want to go into hairdressing 100%. In ten years’ time I would love to have my own salon once I’ve gained all the experience I need and built a good name for myself within the industry.”
