I have been able to pursue an education and a career I am passionate about. Along the way, I have learned that giving back to the community I work in is a huge part of personal growth.
I have been very fortunate to partner with 2 charities where I am able to put my knowledge and skills to great use.
Annually - I partnered with Prom Project Hamilton to beautify elementary and high school girls during their event. After each student picked their outfit, they were off to see the hair and makeup team. I was able to give each student a quick tutorial and a glam session to make them feel great about themselves. They were then off to get dressed and get some great photos taken.
May 2017 - I partnered with AIS Solutions to provide makeup services for the Steps to Success charity event. This event provided women reentering the workforce with the opportunity to shop for a business outfit, resume writing, career coaching, interview tips, and quickie hair and makeup sessions. Some of these women have fallen on hard times and this provided an opportunity to give them the confidence boost to reenter the working world.
