Nicole Jackson, Walnut Creek, Calif., Blake Austin College Beauty Academy
Nicole’s philosophy could be described, “Don’t tell me that it can’t be done.” She says that the BCL │CND | Tippi Hedren Nail Scholarship is an important first step in helping her pursue her dream career. Although Nicole dreamed of a career in nail art from an early age, she did not receive support to follow her passion. Upon completing her education, Nicole plans to become a nail educator. “I want to inspire those who have been told they cannot pursue nails as a career and show them what a creative, rewarding career this can be,” she says.
