A couple of months ago, two other classmates and myself were selected to be in a photo shoot for our school, Trident Technical College. The school wanted to update their paraphernalia on the Esthetics program and Cosmetology as a whole.
The photo shoot went great. The photographer was supposed to email us all of the shots taken. To date, that hasn’t happened yet. Last week I went to the college to see one of my instructors. I sat through two hours of the class and gave input on the practical testing procedures. When class was over, one of the students, who was in the photo shoot with me, asked if I had received any pics via email. I told her I was in the dark just as she was. Then to my shock, she pointed out the newspaper clipping posted up on the bulletin board.
I had no idea they were going to put it in our local newspaper. I found myself a little angry at the fact that it was posted on May 6, and I had no idea about it. Luckily, my teacher gave me the actual clipping for my own records and put xeroxed copies back up on the board.
I heard one of the students comment, “I told Jewells she is a superstar.” She said that out of earshot but I have supersonic hearing=) It made me smile on the inside. To hear someone that doesn’t know anything about me say something like that was truly humbling. The other two students took some great shots and I was just so surprised to see that they selected my solo shot instead of our group shots to put in the paper. To see myself in print like that was like a confirmation that good things are on their way. The best is yet to come.
This is Jewells signing out…
