Caper 2017 in Orlando, Florida proved to be a life-altering experience for Temple Frederick Future Professionals! Caper, a Paul Mitchell Schools’ annual event, is designed to educate and inspire Future Professionals from all over the country.
Every year, several thousand Paul Mitchell Future Professionals gather for this once in a lifetime educational experience designed just for them.
Held at the Coronado Sprints Resort in Walt Disney World, the educational event featured fashion shows, inspiring motivational speakers like John Paul DeJoria and Winn Claybaugh as well as hands-on classes with top stylists and a Career Connection where students could network with salons.
“Caper truly was the best trip ever,” said Colby Nees. “It is hard to fully explain the experience. Where I aspire to be in this industry completely changed during and after Caper. Hearing the professional’s stories of how they got there was very inspirational. It made me realize that I could also one day be a platform artist and achieve big goals!”
Learning Leaders for event included industry icons Robert Cromeans, Lucie Doughty, Diana Schmidtke, Sharon Blaine, Debra Dietrich and Devri Ficklin along with inspirational speakers Kathy Buckley, Geno Stampora, Kelly Cardenas and Cedric King.
“For me it was very motivational. It made me think about what I was doing and where I wanted to go with my future career and how to get there. It helped me to understand where I wanted to be. It changed my mindset and propelled me to dream bigger – the sky is no longer the limit,” said Nichole Adams, Future Professional.
As a grad from The Temple, I have nothing but amazing things to say. I knew from the beginning that this was the school for me and every single day there held up to that expectation. The possibilities are truly endless with the amount of opportunities you are provided in order to make the connections you need within this industry and I cannot express how grateful I am for Sharon & Charles Riser as well as the entire Temple family for the hard work they put in to make sure everyone who walks out of there is set up for success. My experience within those doors was truly life changing. Not only was I getting to learn something I’ve wanted to do since I was a freshman in high school but I got to meet so many amazing people within those 1500 hours. They say in your first week that you’re going to meet your best friend here and I definitely did. It’s so inspiring being surrounded by likeminded individuals who are all striving for the same goal. I truly don’t know if I would have gotten the same opportunities at any other school.
