His early twenties were the darkest times of his life. He used to be a drug addict who did not care about people around him. But now, when he is sober, he changed his attitude.
Nasir Sobhani – a 26-year-old barber - has found a way to serve others with the use of his skill. Everything started when he had the trade courses in Melbourne, Australia.
This is Philip. He is 48 years old and sells The Big Issue - which is a street newspaper published in four continents. It is written by professional journalists and sold by homeless individuals.The Big Issue is one of the UK's leading social businesses and exists to offer homeless people, or individuals at risk of homelessness, the opportunity to earn a legitimate income, thereby helping them to reintegrate into mainstream society. I was also told that it employs people suffering from mental illness and/or physical disabilities. It is the world's most widely circulated street newspaper. He shaves his own head and beard once a year whenever he gets a haircut but I asked him if I could give him a simple style and he instantly agreed. #thestreetsbarber #cleancutcleanstart #allpraisetothemosthigh #wenotme Photo Cred - @aa_imagery
He had a talk with another addict who had been sober for a month. By the time their conversation was over, he decided to give him a free haircut to celebrate his sobriety.
After seeing her son’s new look, the addict's mother couldn’t hold the tears as she expressed her gratitude to Nasir! This inspired him to give more haircuts and put more smiles on faces.
Nasir Sobhani says:
It was at this point that I realized that if I could help encourage this change for a guy and all I’m doing is just what I love doing, then maybe I should keep doing it.
Now, he rides the streets on his skateboard and makes haircuts for homeless people for free. He calls the project “Clean Cuts, Clean Start.”
He wants to support homeless people and helps them feel loved and valued again.
