Living with passion and purpose sums up Bailey’s approach to life and she finds her purpose in creative expression coupled with a fierce drive to succeed. “The beauty industry is fast-paced and provides unlimited possibilities for self-expression,” she says in her video application. “Success and happiness – those words are pretty much a blanket statement when it comes to describing the beauty business.” The aspiring salon owner says every day in beauty school is a confirmation that she is on the right path to live out her life’s purpose and she cannot imagine pursuing any other career.
