– Graham-Henries won World Record Academy title of ”World’s Youngest Barber” for her passion and skill At age seven, Neijae Graham-Henries found her passion when her brother chose to discontinue the Junior Barber Academy in North Philadelphia in 2018. Even as a toddler, she believed people can show others something that they’re capable of doing the extraordinary.
Face2Face Africa reports that her mother, Jamie Graham, said: ”She wasn’t intimidated because she was the youngest student, and she was not intimidated because she was the only female”
Before she was due to start her second grade, Graham-Henries had become a certified barber. Soon after her training, she started volunteering works to cut students’ hair for free at a back-to-school event.
The 8-year-old spends her time going to school and giving free haircuts to those in need and at the same time mastering her skills from Philadelphia barbers. Describing her technique, Graham-Henries said: ”The whole process is to finish it and do it really good and to, like, style it good.”
Today we recognize 8 yr old barber Neijae Graham-Henries, who gives free haircuts to the Philadelphia homeless community. Neijae wished to do more with her training & give back. “I wanna help help people in need. I wanna make people feel good about themselves.” #BlackHistoryMonth pic.twitter.com/JF3O27CDat
