Bee from Staten Island, New York

If you help cover the cost, I'll get my barber license and be ready to start a salon!

I'd like to use my creative energy to build a business and find stability. I need help paying for the cost of a license so I can get started!


I am an artist, a creator, a person, a woman. I am transgendered.

My goal is to open my own hair salon one day. I'd like to be financially independent and successful.

I need to obtain my certificate in order to be a licensed barber in NYC. My savings can go only so far, and the additional $500 would enable me to achieve my dream. If possible, I would like to attend the Career School of Cosmetology on Staten Island.

My barber's license would be my first step towards opening my own salon. I'd be licensed, self-supporting, independent businesswoman.

I've been supervising Bee for some time now. Her life is on the cusp of change for the better. She possesses an artistry and a meticulous attention to detail that is remarkable and worthy of development. A $500 barber license is substantially lower than a cosmetology license which can run over $2,000+.
