Being a student can be tough, there are so many demands on your life personally and professionally. At times you almost feel like you want to give up, and that there is too much for you to handle. But that is the most amazing part of your new career path. Discovering your talents and venturing into a completely different lifestyle. Having a blast at trying new things, and making connections with like minded individuals.
So our BP Beauty Team had the chance to catch up with our BP Beauty Student Kinga to find out how is she managing all the demands on her schedule while making every moment count in her studies!
Kinga K., is studying Hairstyling this year, and is half way through her program.
This is what Kinga has to say:
- What is your Passion? What inspired you to be in this industry?
I have always been interested in being a hairstylist and been interested in colour corrections, specifically. I decided to just pursue my interest in something that I have always loved t do.
- Why/How did you initially choose to be a student at Body Pro?
I did my research about various schooling options primarily online and I learned that Body Pro has a very good reputation from previous students. The schedule for classes has allowed me to learn in a time frame that suits the rest of my day.
- What do you like most about Body Pro when you are here studying?
I like how involved and present all of our instructors are. They are very hands-on with each student and are dedicated to making sure that we succeed. Instructors will extend themselves to make sure that each and every one of us understand and are comfortable with every project and concept we are learning.
- What are some of your struggles? How did you overcome them?
It is not easy to juggle the demands of school with the rest of my life and at time the curriculum and workload can be difficult to manage. We are put in high pressure situations while learning. I get through it because I understand that many of the situations that we are put in at school are just preparations for what is to come in our profession.
- What do you find to be unique about Body Pro Beauty? Highlight one of your favourite moments while being in school at Body Pro Beauty.
It is unique because it is a beautiful facility, all of the staff cares about our success and are involved at all times. It is great that we have access to different instructor’s perspectives and techniques. My favorite moments at Body Pro Beauty have involved outside professionals coming into the school to give workshops, tips, and introductions to the latest products, techniques and trends.
- What are three major attributes Body Pro Beauty has given you that has helped you be more prepared for your current position or the industry itself?
There is big emphasis on customer service, punctuality and keeping your workstation spotless.
- What advise would you give a potential student looking to get started in this industry?
Follow your passion and stick with it. Be determined and don’t be afraid to ask questions beyond just knowing something. Your goal should be to understand it.
- Please include anything that you want our readers to know.
It has been a challenge to manage and sacrifice spare time, sleep, and the gym and a lot of my previous personal routines to make it to school every morning and to spend my nights studying but nothing is more rewarding than seeing it pay off and seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. I am excited about the future.
