Studying Business Management and possibly running her own salon one day is high on Jhenifer Martinez’s list of priorities. In her current job she is the only person who speaks Spanish, and has learned the value of that skill. Stylists frequently ask for her help with Spanish speaking clients, and Jhenifer often stays with the client through the haircut or color, knowing that the client feels more comfortable receiving a service when she is close and can answer a question or explain a process. She loves helping people feel beautiful and truly loves her job in the salon. Being bilingual is a great advantage, she wrote in her essay, especially living in an area where so many people speak Spanish. Her goal of providing a service and running a business will be only be enhanced by her bilingual skills. We are happy to present her with the Kris Hall Memorial Scholarship.
