December 2017 Student Spotlight – Leah Hennessy
January 2, 2018
Name: Leah Hennessy Age: 24
LaBarberia Institute of Hair, the Cleveland Barber College has been recognizing our students with a monthly spotlight, for their talents, ambition, and hard work. For the month of December we would like to acknowledge Leah Hennessy. Leah is from Lakewood, Ohio. She was a nursing assistant for The Cleveland Clinic before coming to LaBarberia.
Leah grew up getting her hair cut at Best Cuts and when she discovered a local barbershop she fell in love with the way they cut hair and the atmosphere. She later saw herself becoming unhappy her job at the time and did not know where she was going with her life so she decided to do something she believed she would enjoy and excel at.
Her biggest challenge as a barber student has been believing in herself and her talents like others do. Her confidence and being aware of her abilities is the hardest thing for her to master.
However, it has been overwhelmingly rewarding, challenging herself daily, meeting life long friends, and being able to give back to others.
Upon graduation at LaBarberia, Leah looks forward to working in a shop she loves, doing what she loves and that’s cutting hair.
In her free time she loves listening to music, going to shows and concerts, shopping, hanging out with my friends and family, getting tattoos, reading , and of course binge watching Netflix.
