Growing up I had always wanted to become a cosmetologist. In high school, I let other people’s opinions persuade my decision and I decided to go to nursing school. I like helping people, but nursing wasn’t for me. I didn’t like being around sickness and death everyday, but I’m thankful for people who do. I finally made the life changing decision to follow my inner desire to be a cosmetologist, and let me tell you…IT SO PAID OFF. I am so much happier doing something that I love. I truly don’t feel like I’m working, I’m just chatting with another person and helping them find their beauty that others see. We are so hard on ourselves as women, I’m here to tell you: DON’T BE. You are beautiful and I will make sure you know and feel that before I let you out of my chair.
