24 May Student Spotlight – Samantha
Student: Samantha Program: Esthiology
Meet Samantha; she is one our Part Time Esthiology students. Learn more about her below:
Q: WHAT MOTIVATED YOU TO ENROLL AT THE AVEDA INSTITUTE MADISON?
SAMANTHA: I originally became interested in Aveda because I wanted to attend the cosmetology program, but once I found out about the esthiology program and attended an Open House, I was immediately drawn in and wanted to start as soon as possible! I now realize I am much more interested in skin care than hair, but maybe one day in the future I will look into taking the Cosmetology program as well!
Q: WHAT IS THE MOST EXCITING THING YOU HAVE LEARNED SO FAR IN YOUR PROGRAM?
SAMANTHA: Waxing! I was very shocked by how much I actually enjoy waxing, so I would say that was a pretty exciting moment once I figured that out.
Q: WHERE DO YOU SEE YOURSELF AFTER GRADUATION?
SAMANTHA: After graduation, I really want to further my education and take the massage therapy program! I then plan on moving to either Colorado or somewhere down south and getting a job working at a salon/spa. The dream would be to eventually work on a cruise ship one day.
Q: WHAT IS ONE PIECE OF ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO OTHERS THINKING ABOUT COMING TO SCHOOL?
SAMANTHA: JUST DO IT! I had so many thoughts and concerns running through my mind before starting school. I worried about if I would have the time, money and patience for it, and those are normal concerns, but now that I’m doing it I wouldn’t change it for the world! Coming to Aveda Institute Madison had made such a positive impact on my life! I look forward to coming to school every day and learning something new. I am so excited for my future, this is definitely one of the best decisions I have ever made!
SAMANTHA: My favorite Aveda product would definitely have to be the Blue Cooling Oil. Nothing feels better after a facial or massage and then receiving the Blue Cooling Oil on your shoulders and back with a hot towel. A little goes a long way!
Q: ANY OTHER THOUGHTS/COMMENTS?
SAMANTHA: AIM is a wonderful place to be if you are looking to start a career in the beauty industry! The staff is wonderful and helpful, and the environment is very positive and motivating 🙂
