Hometown: Santa Maria, California 

Current Residence: Glendora, California

FIDM Degree: Beauty Industry Management

Graduation Year: 2017

Why did you choose your major? I already had my background in artistry when it came to the beauty industry. I wanted to learn how the product that I was using got onto the shelf and into my home. I wanted to see what was the journey to creat products was. 

How did the program help prepare you for a career in beauty? It brought everything that I learned from my AA into an actual idea. We learn so many ways to research and to create products and just leave it as a concept for projects with our AA program, yet for BIM they take all of that and apply it into the real world and help us use real life examples of how to apply what we learned into our work. 

What are you doing now? I just finished one of the greatest internships as a Public Relations Intern for Pravana. There, I oversaw and helped with all PR with Pravana hair care/color and I ensured that whatever was sent out to artists/influencers, was held up to the standards at Pravana. 

What did you love best about working at Pravana? I love that I can be myself at a company. I feel that as the younger generations come into power at corporate job positions the more we see this shift of people starting to welcome individuality in the work space so that your creativity can help with the company.
