 This weeks article is a personal topic. I am going to advise the college I’m going to and for what career why I’m going so far away, when and why that  college. As you already read I’m looking at a college called Blake Austin. It is not a four year college which is what I’m looking for. I’m going to college for cosmetology.

 If you visit the actual website for Blake Austin there is a woman at the left hand side at the bottom of the website that says “ Have a Question? Click here to Chat.” This is the first thing  I used when I visit the site. Here is the conversation:

Cheyanne Perkins:[11:21:15am]

 Yes, please.



 Thank you. Is (706)-***-**** the best phone number to reach you at?


 After that I got a call and we spoke. The lady gave me great insight and information concerning my career I want to pursue. She helped me navigate through the website and find out everything I needed to know about the college and what I need to do to become and pursue my dream. The reason I want to become a Cosmetologist is because growing up in the foster homes when I was little I was always given haircuts I don’t like. Not only when I was little, but I was recently adopted a few years ago by my auntie and my uncle. I normally let my hair grow out really long, get trims inbetween, and then get it all cut off. My auntie takes me to get my haircut and trimmed by different people, and every time she takes me it makes me nervous. It makes me nervous because they always cut it or trim it uneven. I thought asking for no layers would help, but it doesn’t: they still cut it uneven. So to solve that problem I decided I would become a hairdresser. I want to be able to do my own hair. If I decide to start a family one day I want to be able to do there hair too. The reason I get so over protective over my hair is because I I’ve always loved hair.

 Now, I’m not professional, but so far I’m self taught. I trim my own hair, my uncleJr., my auntie, my brother, and his girlfriend. I do multiple hair styles on mine and other people hair. Blake Austin is not a four college.
