So without further adieu - here is our first official blog post, and my story:
I started off in the beauty industry in 2004 at a local academy. I was a senior in high school ready to be done with the high school scene and eager to start a career. My parents were not happy with my decision to go to "hair school". They had plans of me going straight to college after graduating high school and ultimately wanted to see me studying law. Regretfully, they agreed to let me go through the cosmetology program I chose - but it was on condition that I pay for all of it.
At that point in my life I had never really had a "real job", but I was not going to let that stop me from doing what I really wanted to do. So I got a "real job" - actually I worked three jobs to fund my education. I enrolled in the academy and started school that fall. I graduated the following November and was able to pay for it all (don't worry - I had some shopping money too ;). Although this was just the beginning - what I learned would prove to be a driving influence for getting me where I'm at today. I learned that if you want something bad enough in life you can get it - it just depends on how hard you are willing to work for it.
and so . . . I was on my way. A young energetic girl who was following her dreams - and life was beautiful. TO BE CONTINUED . . .
