Hi, thanks for taking interest in this campaign. I’m in my late twenties and I’ve spent my young life feeling the weight of the world on my shoulders.
They say you need to fill your cup first before you can fill anyone else’s well, for years I tried the very opposite and now I’m at a point where I need to get on my feet for some really important reasons.
I’m asking for your help, please help me get my foot in the door with Microblading training. I’m aiming for 3 course trainings in this. It would help me because where I stand now, it took me too long to get my cosmetology license during the U.S. recession (I was just 19 trying to scrape by to attend school and pay by myself). With those delays, by the time I got into the salon, I got pulled away to help TWO loved ones battling with terminal illness. The second one was a deep heart break for me, I lost my step father at 40 years old who left behind my beautiful half baby brother.
As Big Sister, who purposefully avoided having kids until I’m financially ready, I just think about getting my life even more together to help my mom raise him. I just want to give him as much of a wonderful life as I can contribute.
These past few years have been rather up and down, and I’ve met a lot of resistance with much persistence. I know I would do well in Microblading but it would be such a blessing to speed up my journey (comparatively to the lengthy one I rode in cosmetology) just so that I can start bringing quality stability and family experiences to my family just as they try and figure out how to live without my stepdad. None of this is a joke, and I wish I had done this when I was trying to go to cosmetology school for my life would have looked very different by now. You can’t imagine how much resistance I still receive about getting myself going in cosmetology, with the years that it took to wrap it up I ended up losing momentum with potential employers based on my resume showing a lack of consistent practice due to affording sparce tools/supplies/training.
In order to carry on, I acknowledge I need more training to improve, and your generosity would be a gift beyond words.
