Eyelashes, plenty of eyelashes!

Last week Hannah, our new apprentice received her very first pay slip. We remembered our first pay check fondly, Amy earning £2.18 per hour for 6 hours on a Sunday whilst saving up to pay for a school skiing trip and Caroline first months wages went on a pair of Rebina shoes, she can still remember choosing them, wearing them every day and polishing them daily. So we asked Hannah to let us know how she felt about receiving her first pay packet…

“I can’t believe how fast my first month has gone, feels like it was only yesterday that it was my first day! Getting my first wage was a nice feeling; knowing how I could buy whatever I wanted and no one could stop me. Not having to rely on my parents for money was strange at first but then realising I had earned my own money gave me a proud feeling. The first thing that I wanted to buy was some new jeans, a new top, some new footwear and eyelashes, plenty of eyelashes!

I think earning your own money under the age of 18 is something to be really proud of and is a huge achievement. It’s a lot better than having to clean the house for money and having to rely on anyone else. When you know you’re getting up in a morning to earn your own money, it’s a good feeling!”

Eyelashes, plenty of eyelashes!
