For nearly 11 years, hairdresser Bledi Morava has pursued his passion for making others look and feel beautiful. Over the years he developed his expertise, but realized that, without having business knowledge, he could not achieve his dream of owning a salon. That is when he turned to Becker College.
“Everyone knows the importance of higher education today,” Bledi says. “I enjoy learning about the business world from our instructors—who have real-world experience—and working closely with my classmates. I have gained confidence and know that this decision will make me want to keep expanding my horizon by reading, networking, and keeping an open mind.”
In May 2012, he will earn a bachelor’s degree in business management through the College’s Center for Accelerated & Professional Studies.
Bledi credits encouragement from his family and friends for helping him to manage the challenge of balancing college, work, and life. He also believes in the importance of being socially responsible; he supports community causes at work and at home.
Bledi’s advice to others is: “Take advantage of Becker College and all that it offers. I only wish I had done this sooner—time flies—you want to be on the right track when you look back at your decisions ten years from now.”
