Prior to coming to GJA, I attended a conventional university setting and found that learning environment wasn't conducive for me.  I appreciate the hands on approach and the constant support that I receive as a student at the academy.  I value the fact that we are encouraged to use our creativity to explore and express ourselves.

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.
