“Learning to Love Change”

After moving from Texas to Utah, Faviola experienced depression and was encouraged by a quote about patience during periods of change. “Change is hard at the beginning, messy in the middle and gorgeous at the end. I’m looking forward to the gorgeous part,” says Faviola. The medical assistant, night school student and aspiring business owner had her eyes opened to the joy of beauty after taking a tour of her beauty school. “As soon as they gave me a start date, I said let’s start now, because I’d fallen in love with beauty.” Looking forward to her future in beauty, Faviola is seeing a glimpse into the quote that motivated her following her move – a career that is literally gorgeous.  Watch her video here.
