I have often thought about my answer to the posed question. If I could make a living doing what I love most, it would no doubt be cosmetology. This answer may seem juvenile and silly, but to me, feeling beautiful is the most important thing in the world.
There is always going to be someone out there who does not like you or tries to put you down. I believe that confidence is the only thing that we have complete and utter control over because no one can take it away from us. Of course I believe that everyone should feel beautiful in their own skin, because beauty truly radiates from the inside. Unfortunately, some people just do not have the ability to see that in themselves.
I love to make people’s inner beauty shine by extenuating their physical beauty. Just the right haircut or a little bit of makeup can boost anyone’s self-confidence and make them feel as if they can take on the world. When people feel as if they can take on the world, they won’t let anything or anyone get in their way. Enhancing a person’s self-confidence can really chance their life. By changing one life at a time, I believe I can change the world.
To make this dream a reality, I would simply need the support of my family and friends. Once you have support behind an idea, nothing is impossible.
