Sophie Graham, co-director of Laurence London hairdressers in North Chingford shares her future ambitions, achieving dreams and her love for West Essex

Who are you and what do you do?

I am Sophie Graham. I am a hair stylist and co-director of the innovative Laurence London hairdressers in North Chingford.

Where do you live and why?

I have lived in North Chingford since I was a child, and my family and I moved to Hertford in my teens. I am delighted to have moved back to Chingford, my old home town.

What is the best part of your job?

Making my clients feel great about their hair and hopefully providing a boost to their self- confidence when they leave the salon. This feeling is very satisfying.
