“It’s so overwhelming to be HITO Apprentice of the Year. I’ve worked so hard over the last three years to get here. Don’t give up on your dreams and keep working hard towards your goals”.
Courtney Jackson, HITO Apprentice of the Year 2015
“It was such an honour to receive this award. Running a successful salon in Christchurch is a challenge after the earthquake damage, and winning this award confirms that we are doing an incredible job. We were absolutely speechless when we won the award a second time. I look forward to encouraging other salons to take on apprentices and get involved in training”.
