Brown Aveda Institute Mentor, OH
Ava Natoli, a current esthetics student, expressed how unhappy she was while spending two years working for an insurance company. She was not motivated and was uninspired by her career choice. She had always had a passion for beauty and makeup, so she decided to quit her day job and apply as a receptionist at a medical spa. The culture within the spa confirmed her passion that becoming an esthetician was her true calling. During the last year, the changes gave way to some mental health challenges that became an obstacle she had to overcome. To help get her through this tough time, she tapped into the encouragement of her mother. Her mom passed away when she was younger, but she knew by fulfilling her passion, her mother would be proud. Putting a smile on other peoples faces, for the work she does is extremely empowering. Completing the esthetics program and becoming successful, is vital not only for herself, but also for her mom and her future clients. Check out her winning submission HERE.
