I love that a career in cosmetology allows for flexibility with your lifestyle.  I really enjoy how the educators have a high expecation when it comes to professionalism.  As students, this is important because it gives us an idea of how to conduct ourselves in the real world in order to be successful.

I have always had an interest in the beauty industry and decided to begin my path into the cosmetology world by attending GJA.  Having the chance to be creative and master my skills as well as being able to make people look and feel beautiful is what reeled me in the most.  I value that the educators give us the best educational experience, I always feel prepared for anything!

As a young girl, I always liked experimenting with my hair and it quickly turned into a passion.  The educators at GJA aren't afraid to challenge you, allowing you to achieve things that I've never thought were possible at this point in my education.  The thought of what lies beyond school and what my future career is going to bring me is what pushes me to be better everyday.

For the last 20 years of my life I've been dedicated to taking care of other people, specifically my husband and children.  When it was time for me to choose a second career, I decided to come to GJA.  I enjoy welcoming people into the salon as if they were being invited into my home; I get to pamper them and they leave feeling cared for.  The instructors here have been an invaluable part of the experience.  They are knowledgable, caring and dedicated.  When I graduate, one of my goals is to do charity work utilizing the training I received here.

Cosmetology has always been a passion of mine, I love to make people feel good about themselves.  What stands out the most for me about the training at GJA is the extensive amount of help all of the instructors are willing to give.  You can never ask too many questions, and they are always there to help you along the way.

I love helping others look their best and feel confident about their appearance.  I've always known that working in an office cubicle at a 9-5 job wasn't for me.  I wanted a career that was flexible and that I could bring my creativity and personality to each day.  The educators at GJA are amazing.  Each one is encouraging and sets high standards for their class.  It is important to be able to feel safe to ask questions when you don't understand something, and every educator here is amazing at creating a safe environment.

I chose a career in cosmetology so that I could say that I love what I do.  Making women feel beautiful inside and out isn't a "job", it's a passion for me.  I feel so fortunate to be at a school where the students and staff are like family.

Hair has always been a passion of mine, but I didn't believe in myself enough until my family pushed me and I came to Gene Juarez Academy for a tour and I was sold!  It was perfect for me and I can interact with clients and make them look and feel beautiful.

I will definitely enjoy the Ambassador visits to the classrooms because I want the classroom students to know I am happy to be available to them for anything they might need. I appreciated that I knew I could go to the Ambassadors if I had any concerns and I am excited to do the same.

I value the hands-on learning and one on ones with the educators that allows me to receive the help I want and need. You also learn all parts of this career. Not just haircuts and color, but the front desk, dispensary and customer service. As a Student Ambassador, I will enjoy getting to know each of the students better and having the opportunity to impact the school in a positive way.
