The youngest barber in Philadelphia

Neijae Graaham-Henries was only seven when she accompanied her older brother as he visited the Junior Barber Academy in Philadelphia to learn about careers. He wasn't interested in hair care, but she was. She told her mom that even if he didn't study hair cutting, she'd "give it a try."

She was the youngest student in her class, and the only girl, but she did not let that discourage her. She said the training was "hard at first, and then easy." Now she's eight years old, and certified to give free haircuts to needy kids her neighborhood as a means of community service. Her dream is to someday cut President Trump's hair. Why? "He has too much hair, and I'd cut it."
