I chose the Cosmetology program because I like to express myself by doing hair and I enjoy helping people and making them feel pretty. We’ve built a bond in this program, unlike any that can be formed at a regular high school. I am currently working at the salon where I completed my internship. This is an opportunity that is not very common for someone my age, and I really feel like this program has helped to set things up for me after graduation.
