Meet Chelsea Eggleston from La’ James International College – Cedar Falls! Chelsea is a Cosmetology student who absolutely loves helping others feel better & beautiful!
“There is no greater feeling than making others feel better and beautiful. Do not listen to the people who tell you that you won’t make it. This industry is what you make of it, so make the BEST of it!”
Check out the questions & answers we got from Chelsea regarding her decision to choose the Cosmetology Industry and why she wanted to make La’ James International College her school.
- What was your first day of school like?
“On my first day of school I was like ‘I AM SO EXCITED TO START LEARNING!’ I wanted to get my hands in hair ASAP! It was very welcoming and energetic.”
- What were your fears & excitements when you first started school?
“I was afraid that I wouldn’t be able to put all the pieces together while doing an appointment. I was also afraid that I would let go of the hose while shampooing a client and I was afraid of my speed.
However, I was super excited to start cutting hair. Men’s cuts have always been my favorite and I love doing them!”
- What was your first appointment & how did it go?
“My first appointment was a manicure and pedicure on one of my friends from work. It went really well even though I was super nervous! My instructor helped prepare me before the service started and it eased my nerves.”
- What LJIC educator has made the biggest impact on you during your journey & how so?
“Mrs. Dierks! She has helped me understand exactly what I’m doing and when I should do it. She has been like a mentor to me.”
- How has LJIC helped bring our your best?
“LJIC has helped me to not be afraid of talking to people and in front of people. It has taught me to always be positive and encouraging, because I know that is my best.”
- What has been your favorite part here at La’ James International College?
“Getting to learn what I love, getting to change people’s lives, making people look and feel beautiful and getting to make those ‘forever’ friends.”
- What would you tell someone who is interested in the industry?
“GO FOR IT! There is no greater feeling than making others feel better and beautiful. Do not listen to the people who tell you that you won’t make it. This industry is what you make of it, so make the best of it!”
