Growing up in Mexico, Cinthia always believed that everyone deserves a chance. “I worked as a volunteer for an orphanage in Mexico City. In a city with at least a million kids living [on] the streets, it was hard for me to ignore that growing problem…”. After studying law for a year and immigrating to Calgary from Mexico in 2008, Cinthia decided to follow her passion and start her career towards becoming an Esthetician. “Cinthia has impressed us at the campus with her open and positive personality. She is an extremely hard worker that consistently goes above and beyond the call” says Calgary Director, Todd Maki.
Why did you choose Esthetics as a career?
“I love making people feel happy. When they come here, they might be stressed out from life but I get to help them feel their best and I love that feeling…I always knew I wanted to be an Esthetician but it took me awhile to realize it. For so long, I wanted to be a lawyer. I studied law for a year in Mexico…but I wasn’t passionate about it….I love beauty products and making people happy. When I came to Calgary, I started investigating Esthetics”.
