“I knew that I wanted to be in Cosmetology when I realized that helping people and making them feel beautiful was my passion. I always wanted a career that was all about betting myself and the people around me. I am finally happy now that I started in a school I am passionate about.”

“My inspiration to pursue a career in the beauty industry was pure curiosity. Many people told me that they could see me behind the chair, but I couldn’t see myself in the industry. If you were to tell me a year ago I’d be going to school for cosmetology I would have laughed. I am now pursuing a dream I never thought I had.”
