I never had a clear idea at school what I wanted to do when I left. I had two hobbies that I was good at one was horse riding and the other was art. I left school with pretty good grades but the best was Art which I got an A* in (my course work was all of faces and especially love eyes!). I knew I didn’t want to be an artist as such so I didn’t think much of it and left it there. I then we to college studying Equine management where I then went to university studding equine science (still no idea what I wanted to do with it). I met my boyfriend at college/uni and by the end of the first year of uni I was pregnant (wasn’t quite the outcome expected from uni). I left uni and my home town of Newcastle where all my family are and moved to Lincolnshire, where my partners job is, and we bought a house together to raise our child. After a year of being a stay at home mum where I tried many different hobbies to keep me entertained the creative side that came with makeup gave me a real passion for it! My mum paid for an intense makeup course in Manchester for my 20th birthday and the rests is history! Here I am 2 years later doing it as a career and loving every second! I love talking to people and hearing all their interesting stories so this job is perfect. I joined The Bank team in November and working at The Bank has meant I’ve been able to meet loads of people and make friends along the way.
