Thank you so much for volunteering to be the first guest speaker for our 2021-2022 Cosmetology Virtual Speaker Sessions. Your sessions were informative and truly engaging. The students enjoyed hearing about your many experiences in the industry and found your personality enthralling. Our students learned strategies on how to build a global clientele list and the importance of tenacity. The student swag gifts were also an unexpected and wonderful treat. They were so excited to receive their gifts.
