The Apprenticeship is what gave me the ability to realise my dream and to ultimatelly discover AA aesthetics . I have been asked the same question repeatedly : "Why did you want to do The Apprenticeship ?"
With limited business experience at that point and having a skill set more suited to a make up studio than a aesthetic theatre ,I didn't for one moment imagine that I would actually start practicing cosmetology.
My interest in aesthetics started long before I applied to be an apprentice . I have always been image-conscious - I am a female in her early twenties , and I am not ashamed to admit that I care about how I look. Nor am I ashamed to admit that, like most women (and increasingly so men), I too feel pressure to look a certain way. I am not advocating that this societal pressure is correct, but let's not deny that it exists.
The increasing popularity of cosmetic procedures was clear to see, but it was only when a family friend unfortunately experienced a botched facial filler procedure that I first realised the issues in the industry. I was still in school at the time, and this friend's bad experience was at the hands of a non-medical practitioner, who was not performing in a clinical environment. I was inquisitive by nature, and read way too much on just about everything, so I started researching the sector and was horrified to find that no law had been broken! There was NO regulation regarding where these treatments should be performed, or by whom.
I was appalled, and this fuelled my intrigue in the sector.
This mentorship will not doubt be life-long - learning is my passion, and I hope I never stop.
The Apprenticeship itself was harder than I had anticipated. The working hours were almost as bad as A&E's and the tasks were tough, but I would love to say how much I am enjoying it all, and there definitely were parts that I love,but mostly, it was work! Still, not least is that I have had the opportunity of meeting some wonderful people.
I hope that my personal passion for this industry, my care for my patients and my dedication to excellence come across to everyone who I come across at AA aesthetic clinic
