“If you can’t stop thinking about it, don’t stop working for it,” proclaims the inspiration board accompanying Yvette’s scholarship application. Following a job loss, Yvette resided in a transitional living center where a yoga class helped her realize that self-care is an integral part of a healthy life. Now a certified yoga instructor teaching children and seniors, Yvette aspires to help people look and feel better as an esthetics professional.
The Murad Esthetics Scholarship will change my life by giving me the opportunity to live my dream of owning my wellness center. My journey in wellness and beauty came after becoming pregnant with my son. I lost my job, my house went into foreclosure and my children’s father left me. We eventually moved into a transitional living center where a yoga teacher would come teach us once a week. Yoga helped me with my anxiety but most importantly it made me realize that no matter what goes on in life it is imperative to take care of ourselves. Since then, I have become a certified yoga instructor and have volunteered and taught children to seniors. Currently, I am enrolled in an esthetics program and would love to continue to help people look and feel better which will make the world a better place.
