Q- Where is your hometown?
A- New York Mills, Minnesota
Q- How long have you been a student at TSPA?
A- I started August 2020
Q- What is your favorite food?
Q- Why did you choose The Salon Professional Academy?
A- I heard a lot of good things about the school itself, and how it’s a structured program. I knew that I needed a structured program for myself, and I can say I have thrived off of it !
Q- Why did you decide to pursue a career in Cosmetology?
A- Well, technically TSPA is my 3rd school I’ve been to. I first started with my generals at MSTATE Fergus Falls for my generals and then transferred to MSUM for elementary education. I wasn’t the happiest I could’ve been with that schooling, so when the pandemic started I decided this is the time to go for something that has always intrigued me, which was hair. I always loved having my hair done and watching tutorials and playing hairstylist with my babysitters, so I guess it just made sense !
Q- Describe TSPA in one word.
Q- What is your favorite thing about TSPA?
A- The support you get there and outside the school. Everyone is there to see you grow and achieve, with cosmetology and life itself.
Q- Who is your favorite band/music artist?
A- Post Malone
Q- What are your plans after you graduate?
A- Taking a few months off to get all my exams taken care of, and getting my MN license, as well as working at my current job. Once everything is settled I am planning to be moving to the Woodbury area and finding a salon once I get there.
Q- What do you like to do in your spare time?
A- I really enjoy reading and spending time with my friends and family.
