Student Success Stories
I have gotten everything I've needed to fulfill my needs in learning this new career and industry.
Then, as I was waiting for an advisor, I sat through ten minutes of Miss Shanelle's lesson. As she was teaching I was engaged in the class and even knew a few answers to the questions she was asking. Right then I knew I would have no problem enjoying class in this colorful environment. I signed up that day.
I give all the credit to the instructors and staff at Marinello. I have gotten everything I've needed to fulfill my needs in learning this new career and industry. I've gotten many opportunities to do fun and creative things to add to my experience at Marinello. I got to participate at the San Francisco campus retreat for the 3-D nail art completion, where I learned a lot and got inspired by all the other students there.
I recently won an award in the Beauty Changes Lives Enrolled Student Scholarship Competition, and as a result I get to go spend the day with Jan Arnold, co-founder and style director of Creative Nail Design. More than 80 beauty school students enrolled in American Association of Cosmetology Schools submitted videos and essays to enter the contest. My video entry was one of four selected to receive a mentoring experience with a beauty industry icon and $500 travel allowance. A judging panel comprised of industry experts selected the winners based on their passion for the industry and the number of online votes their application submissions received. Entries address the question: How does beauty change lives? and how will you change lives as a beauty and wellness professional? Winners were announced during the Cosmetology Educators of America Convention, July 27–30, in Orlando.
So yes, I definitely think Marinello is the school to go to. The ability to let my mind and hands do the talking through my work, it's because this school lets me. Thanks to everyone that has been a part of my Marinello experience.
