Brigitte Ritter-Giesen

SWITZERLAND

2012 Mentor in Belem (Brazil).

Brigitte is passionate about training young people in the salon where she works and was even awarded the prestigious Trainee-Oscr prize in 2008.  Mother of two, she has always loved working with young people and particularly likes helping them discover their talent.

“In Germany, children grow up with all sorts of possibilities in terms of education and training.  This program offers  young people an opportunity that they may not have had otherwise - that's what I like about it.”
