Humans of Downey - Gustavo


"I'm going to school right now to get my barber's license. Being my own boss is what drew me to pursue this profession. Working for nobody and the money is good. It will be better than submitting all those applications. I want to prove to myself that I can accomplish this. I have to put in 1500 hours at the school to get my license. I can put in those hours at my discretion but if I don't complete them within my contracted time, I have to pay more. I'm on schedule though. I currently have 530 hours in since March.

"I used to work at Home Depot and I felt the people there were struggling because of the environment. I'd hear the same stories from most of them about how hard it was. Some other events were pushing me to make a change. I started thinking and decided that I wanted something different. That's when I started pursuing barber school."
