Barbara Pomeroy lives in Millinocket, Maine a member of the Northern Penobscot Chapter of SUFU.  Stacy G spoke with Barbara Pomeroy, and this is what she said. 

I’ve been interested in beauty and makeup ever since I was a little girl.  My Aunt was a hairdresser and I watched her.  Barb said she was inspired when she attended the workshop, at the SUFU Caribou conference, Everyone can Work!

Barbara took home an information booklet from the workshop about Empire Beauty School.  Barb called the beauty school, made an appointment, and met with Linda who oversees the Bangor school.  Barbara is now signed up and ready to go in the spring.

Classes will be 9 am to 4 pm Monday through Friday and she will have to travel one hour each way to get there and back home.  Barbara identified that two years ago she applied for housing in Bangor and has been on a wait list ever since but eventually will move there.

Barbara said, “it’s going to be expensive, and I need to apply for a loan”. Barb is excited, nervous, and happy thinking about all the people she is going to meet and acquire new friends.

Barbara will keep us posted about her new adventures and we wish her all the luck.
