Nails 101: A Student Blog

Week 28: Looking Back On What I’ve Learned So far

by A'Kia warrior | August 11, 2016 | Bookmark +

Only a few more weeks until I graduate! The highlight of this week for me would be the excitement that my friends are having about me being so close to the end of this process. I even had the opportunity to do some work on friends based on things I have learned and continue to learn. It put the biggest smile on my face to see them happy with the end product. It only goes to show that I am in the right place doing the right thing at this time in my life.

It has not been the easiest journey for me, but I have been able to learn so much. I have developed some great personal and professional relationships that I believe that will stand the test of time.  There have been some struggles that I have had with the school and there have been times I wanted to quit.  But this week, I reflected on how far I have come and how I knew that this wouldn’t be the end for me.  I continue to push through because I know that with the right level of professionalism I am able to get what I need when I need to have it. 

This week also marked the week that I completed my repetitions as a part of requirements needed to graduate.  I looked at my progress report in awe because I cannot believe that I did so much in what I can now call “so little time.” Eight months may seem like a short length of time to most, but when you are in a program learning something new and juggling so many other priorities in life it can be the longest time ever.

Next week, I prepare to take my Advanced Nail Technician (ANT) exam.  I’m slightly nervous because there is so much to know and I do not want to fail in this. It is so important to me to be able to have a safe salon and to educate my clients on the importance of everything I will be doing to keep them safe while giving them the best service I can. I have been reviewing the material, so my plan is to walk into the testing area confident and ready to pass the exam.

My time as a student blogger is almost up and I have to say that I am going to miss this. But I am looking forward to doing some similar projects going forward, and just the thought of what I can accomplish is giving me chills. I have so much more to say and so much more to share with the world.
