“The Golden Scissors” Gallery
April Fool’s Day was the date of a very serious national competition in Mongolia, the “Golden Scissors,” a contest between the country’s top cosmetology students. My school, the Rajiv Gandhi Polytechnic School of Art and Production, was well represented and my gracious coworkers even cancelled my classes so that I could go to cheer on our students! Members of our vocational program performed extremely well and I congratulate them all! I’m especially pleased to see students from my English club win so many prizes!
Without a press pass it was very difficult to document this event. I thank my friend and coworker, Bayara Barayz, for these stellar photos, all of which are his. I hope the viewers enjoy the spectacle a fraction as much as I did!
