Each individual has a different style of learning, and most of us learn faster through hands-on session. When you lend a helping hand, never ask for anything in return - that's my philosophy. I helped in an Institute of Technical Education (ITE) as a facilitator and educated the younger people. I also did my part in helping a Malay Community Centre to set up classes for those who have a passion in hairdressing, but have financial problems and are unable to pay for classes. Whenever I teach, I would encourage the students to ask questions because in my dictionary, no questions are considered 'stupid'. With each question you ask, you gain another unit of intelligence. each little step alleviates the hairdressing industry in Singapore for the next generation.
