The most rewarding part of being a mom: To me it’s seeing your kids grow up to be amazing people and feeling your love you give them returned to you ten-fold!
The most challenging thing about going to school and being a mom: Finding enough time to spend with your kids and really paying attention to each one by listening to their problems.
What made you decide to go to school at this point in your life? I have always loved the beauty world. I didn’t go to school when I was younger and I regretted it. I got back into the beauty business a year ago and I loved it and decided to go further into it so I can help provide for my family.
What advice do you have for other moms who are contemplating about going back to school? Balance. Go to school and keep up with your work and grades and attendance as much as you can, but make sure to be with your family. Have fun with your kids. They are sacrificing things for you to go to school also! It’s a team effort.
How do you plan on spending Mother’s Day? Haha! Sleeping! Maybe go to a movie and just relax and enjoy the day.
“The teachers were amazing! Without Bellus, I wouldn’t have the rewarding life I have today. School was something I looked forward to every single day. I can’t believe I have a job that I love going to every day.”
“For the past year I have been working on super-yachts in Spain as a massage therapist for billionaires and have loved every second of it! I don’t know what I would’ve done without Bellus’ training and expertise.”
“I love how hands-on the nail program is at Bellus. I am a visual and hands-on learner and I appreciated the time and focus on my advancement throughout the program. I would definitely recommend Bellus Academy to anyone interested in beauty and wellness education, especially the nail program!”
“The program and educators in Make-up Artistry are exceptional. The curriculum was so well designed that each day I couldn’t wait to get to school and begin the next step in learning high-end makeup. I feel very comfortable after taking this class to apply for a job anywhere in makeup, including a Hollywood studio, theater, photography or in a high-end salon and spa.”
“As a cosmo crossover, the Barbering Program was not only an excellent way to brush up on the basics, but also the best way to take my career to the next level. The staff was so helpful in every aspect and I highly recommend the program.”
