Alex Head has proven that getting expelled from school is not a hindrance to one's success in life. Alex proved this by becoming a successful entrepreneur after she was expelled from school.
The Sun UK reports that Alex, who was expelled from school when she was 15 for starting a food fight, set up her own catering business with just £350 (N164,760.85)
Legit.ng gathers that for the past nine years, Alex's business yearly turnover has increased by over 100% for the past nine years - and in 2020, Alex is set to hit the £4m mark (N1,883,639,200).
Alex set up the business Social Pantry from her friend's laptop 10 years after she was kicked out of school.
The 34-year-old entrepreneur began selling homemade lunches to her dad's colleagues at his office.
Alex's business has catered for the likes of Gigi Hadid and Rihanna.
Despite being expelled from school, Alex still managed to get 8 GCSEs and did a cooking course at Ballymaloe cooking school in Ireland when she was 18 before proceeding to study Hospitality at Oxford Brookes University.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that a 19-year-old girl, Liv Conlon, said the bullying she went through in school because she was getting good grades motivated her to make something of herself by starting a fake nail business at 13.
Six years after starting her business, Conlon made £1,000,000 (N475,547,800), the first million she would ever make.
Conlon went from selling fake nails on eBay to running a property furnishing firm.
Conlon said: “Lying by the pool in Marbella, it felt good to relax. To the outside world, I looked like any 20 year old on holiday, but I’d actually been busy all day running the million-pound company I set up at 16. From a working-class background, I’ve earned every penny I have.
“I was bullied at school for getting good grades, and had to move to a new high school because of it. While it would have been easy to believe I was worthless, my mum Ali helped me realise it was not my fault, but a reflection of the bullies’ own insecurities."
