Cosmetology is my passion! I want to be a cosmetologist to help change the way people feel about themselves. Cosmetologists can have a tremendous impact on people’s quality of life. Cosmetologists are an important part of society and unfortunately they are under appreciated.
Whether you’re seventy and need a new perm for bingo or you are homeless and need a haircut for a job interview, if you are seventeen and receive a facial service to treat your acne; to give you the confidence to ask the cheerleader to prom. You should leave the salon feeling like you can take on the world.
Every time I have the blessing to be able to change someone’s life for the better, it improves the way I feel about myself also. Even if I were to win the lottery I would still be a cosmetologist. Knowing that I am doing what I love to do while also helping someone is the most rewarding feeling in the world. I couldn’t ever imagine myself doing anything else. This to me is the most rewarding career field I could ever ask for.
In conclusion my plans once I am licensed are to work in a salon for everyone not just the elite but for everyone. The way that I see the beauty industry is that we don’t just make people look good, we change the way that they feel about themselves. We perform external services to change internal feelings. Everyone should leave my chair with superhuman confidence.
