An Interview With Jessica, Founder of Wildflower Custom Designs

More About Jessica

From a young age Jessica wanted to study electrical engineering in university and follow a similar path to her Dad who is an electrician. To take the next steps towards this career Jessica studied subjects for GCSE that complimented engineering, including Maths and Physics. Jessica was interested in pursuing these subjects in greater depth at A Level.  However, she was not able to study these subjects at a higher level.

This lead Jessica to feel confused about what steps she should take next and after some consideration, decided to study Psychology, Business Studies and ICT. Alongside her A Level exams Jessica also studied a Level 2 hair dressing course in night classes at a local college.

After passing all of her final exams Jessica still felt confused about what to do next as her studies were no longer related to engineering. After much consideration, Jessica took a year out from applying to university courses to a level 3 hairdressing course. From here she continued to develop her career in hair and beauty by completing a Level 4 (HNC) and a Level 5 (HNC) qualification. 

Alongside a career as a hairdresser Jessica learnt some crafts and crochet in her spare time. This was the start of her journey towards finding her side hustle Wildflower Custom Designs.
