Chanell’s Beauty Changes Lives Essay & Inspiration Board

“As a current esthetic student, I want to best prepare myself once I leave school to be an amazing esthetician so that I may snag a position within the industry. This scholarship would allow me all the advantages of taking specialized classes, with my number one being a lash extension course.  This scholarship would be a blessing to me but more importantly, a blessing to my family. I spent 10 years working in the health industry seeking job security, but after being laid off twice and being placed in a situation where I could become homeless,  I decided that I must change my career.

The beauty industry has always been my passion but fear and doubt held me back. When I decided to start school, I was very worried about what would happen to my small family. I have a daughter who is 5, and a few months ago I adopted my niece who is 7 months.  My goal is to show them the importance of staying true to your passions and the liberation of being a business woman.

My “Inspiration Board” is based on my favorite things about being an esthetician and what keeps me motivated to be successful in this industry.”
