Aharon Nkwodimmah: A Jack of All Trades (and Careers)
Blandford, Ayoka
Techniques: Connecting Education and Careers (J3), v87 n5 p26-28 May 2012
Meet 19-year-old barber, artist and soon-to-be college freshman Aharon Nkwodimmah. Nkwodimmah began honing his barbering skills at the age of 12 on his younger brother's head, without permission, of course: that didn't turn out well for either of them. But by the age of 15, Nkwodimmah was known for his "lines." And for that reason, there was always a line in his mother's Delaware basement to be in his chair. Throughout high school, he kept his friends and neighbors "clean." Soon, he graduated from his mom's basement to Liquid Styles barber shop. Nkwodimmah continued to hone his skill and on any given day, still had a line for his chair. This article describes how Nkwodimmah's technical education reignited his desire to learn... everything!
