Business Management Student Opens His Own Barbershop

Entrepreneurship begins with a business idea and the success of that idea depends on how well the individual executes and builds upon that idea.  Student Nelson Roman, Jr., of the Danville, Virginia Campus, took such an idea and ran with it. 

Nelson is pursuing an associate’s degree in business administration-management.  Originally from Brooklyn, Nelson moved to the Virginia area in 1996. He began taking classes in 2011.  During the course of his education, he has faced many obstacles and challenges that caused him to delay his educational goals.  Nelson said, “I had to drop out due to family issues, but I pushed myself and returned only to have to overcome another hurdle, but determination brought me to where I am today, two terms away from graduating.”  Nelson said, “My lifetime dream of opening my own barbershop is now a reality, with God’s help, I will be cutting hair for a long time.”  Nelson’s new barbershop opened earlier this month. 

Student Nelson Roman has just opened his own barbershop in Chatham, Virginia.
