Work experience (July 2011), Nova 2, 53 Firth Road, Croydon During the week, I was doing my work experience at the hair salon, I provided assistance to clients by serving beverages to them, cleaned the inside of the salon, for example, swept hair off the floor, cleaned mirrors and work surfaces. Lastly, I organised hair products on the shelves. Interests and hobbies: My hobbies and interests that I like do in my spare time are, listening to different genres of music such as indie, alternative, and rock. Also, I like to sketch and occasionally sing, play the guitar and dance. I particularly enjoy sketching portraiture from photos of celebrities that I admire or inspire me. Another interest that I enjoy is boxing because it helps me to relieve stress and clear my mind. The types of books that I like to read are fiction and biographies of musicians that inspire me from everyday life. The reason why I have a strong passion for illustration and art is that when I was younger, I created drawings through my imagination using graphite, crayons, markers and colouring pencils. After I have gotten older, I gradually progressed onto using ink, watercolour and acrylic paints. I gained an interest in tattoo designs because I like how some of them has a story and meaning behind them. Also, how they are the different types of style of tattoos such as geometric, tribal, abstract, etc. References Available upon request
