Hair is my passion. It is my way of being creative while hopefully helping others to build confidence in themselves. I hope to be an inspiration to other students and I hope that becoming a Student Ambassador exposes me to new aspects of the beauty industry.

The three things I value most about the educational experience at GJA are the insightful staff, supportive student body and captivating atmosphere. The staff's experience and know-how allows the students to assuredly confide in them whether it be a question regarding a service or a little spirit lift. The student body at GJA is consistently positive and supportive of one another while encouraging confidence and creativity. The Gene Juarez Academy has an environment unlike any I have experienced before. The moment I walk through the doors, I feel a sense of belonging.

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.

What I value most about my educational experience is that all of the educators want the students to be the best cosmetologists that they can be. They push you when they know you can do better and make sure that you understand everything that is being taught. If you don't understand, they will take the time to explain and or show you in a different way. The support system from the staff and from my peers is so amazing.

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 the Gene Juarez reputation and how well known they are not only in Washington, but all over the country. All of the educators are so helpful and always willing to do anything they can to help us to learn. As a Student Ambassador I hope to be a resource that students can use if they have questions, just want to talk or need advice.

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 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.
