About Me

I'm currently a high school student interested in pursuing a career as a cosmetologist. This is my dream job because I enjoy working on people and helping them. Also because I'm very fascinated in the making of a cosmetologist tasks. If it wasn't for tutorials and friends I wouldn't be here talking about cosmetology as a career because they inspired me to do so.
