Amber Fiori is an exceptional student, at the Spring Hill campus, of Bene’s Career Academy. This young woman has seen good and bad times in life, and through it all she has persevered. Always willing to go the extra mile, and work with classmates as a team to accomplish goals. She is more than deserving of some recognition, so we asked her a few questions. Here is what she had to say.
1 - What started your interest in the beauty industry?
I have always loved playing with hair, and after taking care of my dad in his last days before he passed in December I decided I needed to find something to get me out of the house and my mind off of things. I called my sisters and asked for their advice and they said I should go back to school. My response at first was no because I just did not want my nose stuck in a book all the time and that is when they thought of cosmetology.
2- Why did you decide on Bene's Career Academy vs another beauty school?
After the conversation with my sisters, I literally looked up schools in my area and Bene's was at the top of my search list. I took a look at the website and some reviews and the Facebook page and decided like it looked like the school for me, I did not hesitate.
3- You did such a great job with Glamour Camp, what was your favorite part of that experience?
Honestly, the part where what I was teaching the campers just clicked and the look of pure excitement and accomplishment came across their faces!
4- What advice would you give to new students coming into Bene's?
Do not be afraid to ask questions. The more you ask, the more you will get out of the experience and education.
5- What are your career goals and how do you plan to achieve them?
Post graduation I want to work in a salon building my knowledge and clientele, but long term goal is to own my own - at home. My kids and husband are very important to me and I want to be involved in their lives as much as possible while also following my dreams.
