Today we’d like to introduce you to Simon Sarkissian.
Hi Simon, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
I went to Cal State Northridge and graduated with a degree in Sociology. The plan was to continue my education and go to law school. But I was unhappy in the direction my life was going and I wanted to do something that would make me happy. I enrolled myself into cosmetology school. Now I am a hairstylist in Los Angeles, California.
Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It was not a smooth road just because of the family obligations and this predetermined future my family had in store for me. So going against their wishes or what they had envisioned for me was problematic at the time.
Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
I am a hairstylist in Los Angeles, California and I specialize in cut/color and extensions.
What do you like and dislike about the city?
I love our city because there is life throughout our streets. I believe Los Angeles to be a magical place. I don’t like the superficiality of our city.
