Elyse takes on FAME Team
Our very own Elyse Sprott was recently announced as one of the 14 finalists for the Australian FAME Team. Standing for The Fellowship Academy of Merit and Excellence (FAME) is a platform for the youth of hairdressing to stand out and shine.
In her written submission Elyse says, “I truly believe being apart of this initiative would further develop my skills, expand my creativity and expose me to new people and opportunities which would allow me to be the educator I know I can be.”
“I want to show myself I can conquer more, grow more and reach for more; and I believe sometimes these things need to happen outside of normal salon life, away from our usual teams, support systems and safety nets. To be thrown in with new people, new ideas and fresh education strategies. To be uncomfortable, to confirm to myself I am heading in the right direction.”
Being said to be a launch-pad for real career trajectory and future success, this is an opportunity any young hairdresser would be lucky enough to be a part of!
Elyse and the other 13 finalists attended a rigorous live skills test in Sydney and were also required to present a pre-completed model.
Elyse has said one of her favourite things about the entire process was how it allowed for so much self evaluation, really allowing her look at her goals and aspirations.
It goes without saying that we are extremely proud of Elyse for making it this far, and we have our fingers and toes crossed in hopes she is one of the four team members announced at the AHFA awards on April 19th.
