Why I chose Cosmetology as my career
Posted on February 26, 2014 by Amy Fletcher
Ever since I was little I have always wanted to help others in any way I could. When I was nine, I was diagnosed with a disorder called Trichotilomania (a hair pulling disorder). This disorder is very shameful and embarrassing. I had to find creative ways to hide the bald spots that I had created on my head. My doctor told me that there were many other people who had this problem. I didn’t know of anyone else but l I knew how devastating it was and I wanted to help anyone else who suffered from this. I decided to go to beauty school and become a hairstylist. I knew that with training as a hairstylist I could provide a safe and understanding environment for others with Trichotilomania.
I decided to go to Xenon Academy in Aurora Colorado. Xenon is giving me the skills to make my dreams of being a stylist and helping others come true. My time at Xenon has been a life changing experience for me. With the support of the other students I am learning not to be ashamed. With the skills I am learning from the educators I am learning how to help others.
I want to thank all of my co students and educators for guiding me down this path to success.
