In my high school career I had attended a total of two high schools, both very different and both very important in helping me see the world the way that I do today.
In my first high school, Freedom, I took advantage of the performing arts and had partake in a choir as well as beginning art class. Both of those classes helped me to hold myself at a higher standard and to showcase something I had been working on for others to see. My choir class helped me to learn to work with larger groups and to communicate properly with my peers, whereas my art class had helped fuel and recognize I am more than a drowned student among a sea of people. I learned there is creativity and individuality in everything.
In my second high school, Liberty, I had proceeded to take visual art type classes such as ceramics, ROP video, and even yoga. In taking ceramics I learned to work with a new substance and with my TOP video class I learned to get over my fear of being on camera. For my yoga class I count this as an art, because the poses are very demanding on your body and it takes lots of practice. I also think it's beautiful the way you can make your body both graceful and limber at one time; which is why I see yoga as an art.
I believe by me taking multiple visual art classes I am even more ecstatic to be going into cosmetology school. I love that makeup, hair and fashion in general is always changing. I love that there's always something new to learn, and new ways to do things. I love that you must practice and that your work is actually being showcased by people who want your work. I think makeup is so versatile and can portray so many different emotions/feelings and even signify cultures. I think that me going through so many visual art classes has put me in a good spot for wanting to partake in a makeup career.
Aside from my art classes I had also taken part in many different electives and school clubs....
