One of the finalists of this year’s Miss Western Region has hit hard at persons who stereotype hairdressers in the country.
There is this erroneous impression that most hairdressers are covertly practicing prostitution while their salons have become the headquarters of incessant gossips
But this according to Veronica Baffoe who is one of the 12 finalists contesting this year’s Miss Western Region, cannot be true because there is no evidence to back the claim.
In an interview with MyNewsGh.com on the sidelines of the next stage of the event to be held on Sunday, August 2, 2020, she said “I disagree with the claim taking myself as one who is in the industry. I am not a prostitute and I do not gossip. Once you start gossiping about someone to me I make my stance clear that I am never interested”.
Speaking about parental neglect and its repercussions in modelling children in their chosen vocations, she stressed “I completed Junior High School at age 15 but due to financial constraints, I could not proceed to Senior High school though I was brilliant. My parents advised I go into hairdressing, but they never catered for me. I needed to struggle for survival which wasn’t a simple task”
She therefor used the opportunity to urge parents not to shirk their responsibility but endeavor to care for their wards and shepherd them into good vocations in order to cater for them (parents) at their old age.
