Hello Presh Nation,
Lovely Sunday afternoon isn’t it? We’re back in the hairstyling mood and we’re here this time around with, the CEO of Feranliz Styles, Alagbe Elizabeth Oluwaferanmi. It’s a very brief one this time around but i hope we have one or two to learn.

ALAGBE ELIZABETH: Alagbe Elizabeth Oluwaferanmi. A student and also a hairstylist. Working on professionalism
PRECIOUS: As an hairstylist how do you see yourself as an influencer?
ALAGBE ELIZABETH: I am a lover of teenage girls, I think a way I can impact the economy is to help this girls in gathering some skills in hair styling. Let’s see it this way, if there is a young girl out there and she is given a hand on hair styling for free and of course that is if the passion is there, she can go places with that skill. I joined an NGO not too long ago and this NGO happens to be helping the deaf in acquiring skill. By so doing these people add to the workforce of the country and depend less on white collar jobs, thereby improving the country’s economy.
