Cassie Myers, Aveda Institute-Maine, Augusta, Maine
Residing in a rural part of mid-coast Maine, Cassie wants to offer a mobile nail salon that will bring the gift of beauty and pampering to individuals right in their home. She also plans to offer services for weddings, birthdays and other pampering parties. “I’ve considered different career paths, but nails is the career that combines my creativity with my passion for self-care,” noted Cassie in her application.
This scholarship would pay for my school, allowing me to have funds to buy the supplies I need to get started in the industry when I finish school. I have considered different career paths, but there are none that would allow me to pursue my creativity and passion for self-care as being a nail tech will. I am so excited about the idea of changing lives with a mobile nail salon that will allow people to pamper themselves from the comfort of their own home. I will offer many different services including manicure parties for birthdays, weddings, and more. Mid-coast Maine is one of New England’s most popular sites for tourism, however since it is rural, there are not many options for people who want scheduling flexibility. I would be the first mobile salon in the area! I cannot wait to get started!
