Vicky grew up in a difficult home with minimal support from his family. When he arrived at CHW Netanya, he was very discouraged and lacked confidence. However, Vicky’s teachers refused to give up on him, spending time with him every day to help rebuild his self-esteem and put him back on the path to success.

Over time and with perseverance, Vicky regained a better sense of self-worth, pushing himself to succeed both academically and personally; this led to Vicky becoming one of the top hairdressers in Israel! As a matter of fact, Vicky has started his own chain of hair salons.

At the beginning of 2015, L’Oreal hosted an event andinvited prestigious hairdressers in Israel to take part; Vicky was among those selected. L’Oreal honoured Vicky and his achievements by awarding him with a certificate of excellence in customer loyalty.

As if his year was not busy enough, Vicky recently married his long-time girlfriend. Those in attendance included Vicky’s teachers, whom he thanked for helping him get to where he is today.

Vicky’s story is an example of how hard work and a proper support system are two important parts of fulfilling your dreams.
