“Everyone should be able to feel beautiful inside and out, and it will be amazing to make people feel beautiful every day,” said Mikayla in her application. She added, “The most important thing about the Murad Esthetics Scholarship is that I will have an opportunity to change the lives of others every day.” She also looks forward to the opportunities that will arise from working with a Murad mentor.
If I was awarded this scholarship it would change my life in a number of ways. Financially, I would have more freedom to focus solely on advancing my education and less about working to afford it. Another way this scholarship would change my life is giving me educational benefits and information that I won’t get through my esthetics program, learning about another line of products and how they are used to treat different skin conditions. The most important thing about the Murad Esthetics Scholarship is how I will use this opportunity to change other people’s lives. Everyone should be able to feel beautiful inside and out and it would be amazing make people feel that way every day. I will be able to change people’s lives by having the advanced skills to help them with all of their esthetic needs, allowing them to reach their beauty goals leaving more confident.
