Journey begun

7th of July 2014…..

The first day of teaching in Dignity For Children Foundation..
I was kinda nervous yet excited..
7 months ago, it was just a thought in my head . An idea. An idea to bless this society with a pair of scissor.

I’ve been questioning myself. What’s next in life ? I’ve quit my job at Hairplay which I really love to stay… I’ve worked with some of the best hairstylist in Malaysia… I’ve worked as a trainer/stylist in Toni&Guy Malaysia&Singapore..12years of work. What’s next ?

I guess what really drives me is psoriasis. Yes , it’s psoriasis .
But why psoriasis ?

It’s an autoimmune disease that cause my skin to constantly crack and bleed. The amount of pain and itch, i.n.d.e.s.c.r.i.b.a.b.l.e

this psoriasis has caused so much pain that even doctor advised me to give up on hairdressing due to the chemical filled environment ,which likely will trigger it. (Hair coloring..perm .. Bleach and etc) Best is to avoid hazardous chemical as much as I can….I have no choice but to decide to just focus in haircut…

This is on my right arm..
This is a small patch, I have bigger one on my leg,ear , scalp chest and back…if you ever wonder if I do go to the doc ? Yes,i do..i have a long list of doctor , medication and remedies that I’ve tried …and I’m still trying .

Well, to cut the whole story short, psoriasis caused me to appreciate life more and appreciate all the little things in my life…

PSORIASIS caused me to pause and reflect and ponder upon life itself.

it causes me to wanna make the best out of my life instead of dwelling in disappointment of my skin condition- I want to do something with my haircut skill that will make a difference to the society….that’s when I realize why not give away that skill.

That’s when I decided , why not teach this skill to those who deserves it. Those who needs a survival skill in life. A skill that can feed them and help them to achieve breakthrough in life.

Life does not end with psoriasis. Some day psoriasis does feel like hell but I just gotta go through it.. Ever since I started this social project with DignityForChildren.org , I’ve never been so excited about life before. Life with bigger purpose , bigger vision… Is a life worth lived.

I’m entering the 3rd week of teaching at Dignity. Can’t wait to see these underprivileged students to finish this course and embark in the journey towards a successful story of their own.

God is amazing.I believe it’s just the beginning… Beginning of a great story. . I’m believing for my dream to come true. That is to build a great and fun team of hairdresser/barber that will bless this society. I might no be able to change the world, why not change someone’s world =)

Thank God for the strength to go through daily living with psoriasis . Thank God for the vision …thank God for the mission..

Thank God …for choosing me.

Life is short, cut more hair
