Many people strive for success everyday in their lives. I have just succeeded on my next adventure that I never imagined myself doing. I didn't think I would actually be encountered by the hearing people that I would personally be working on. I have dreamed about becoming a cosmetologist all of my life. I changed my dream around quite a bit to become an esthetician instead. (Estheticians are licensed professionals who are experts in maintaining and improving healthy skin.) There's a lot of personal touching but there isn't really any speaking other than the introduction and client consultation. I found it easier than I thought! I was able to make my own gestures, greet my clients with no barriers and put them at an ease. I have my phone to allow them to speak and I am able to read what they are saying to me. Isn't technology so awesome nowadays! The sessions only lasted approximately 60 minutes and clients only spoke once or twice along with a kind "Hello", wonderful compliments and cheery "Thank You's" with generous tips! That really helped with my self confidence that matters a lot to me as a Deaf person. I am not done dreaming. I will be furthering my education to become a medical esthetician! Nothing can stop you when you set your mind on something that you really want!
