I’m at a really low point in my life right now and need help or advice or anything
I have always wanted to do makeup my entire life, it brought me out of my depression and continues to be my favorite pastime and activity and I want to turn it into my career.
This is my plan:
I want to go to a local beauty school to become a licensed esthetician, once licensed I can get high paying jobs doing makeup and skin peels, waxing, etc. with this license I can save up to go to my dream school : cinema makeup school, where I could become licensed and get my foot in the door in the cinematic makeup world. I’ve spent hours researching the best schools and areas and this is the best for me and it’s what I want to do. I will wake up HAPPY to do work and go to my job, isn’t that what matters,???
I currently work at a movie theater making 10.30$/ an hour and don’t make anywhere near enough to pay for my car insurance and go to college
And my family is completely able to support me, they paid both of my brothers through college, but since makeup school is not real school, they will not support me. My dad and mom think I should go to community first and then a four year and THEN do makeup but that is not me. I do not have a major for a college.
4 year colleges are not for makeup careers and I want a career in makeup.
I would attend a 4 year college if I wanted a career that corresponded to a four year college, but makeup artistry does not.
I don’t know why it is ok to fully support my brothers and not fully support me?
I don’t know how I haven’t proven my dedication and passion.
I’m scared for my future, I don’t know what to do
FAFSA will only give a 1,000$ grant because of our high income, but my family refuses to use the income towards beauty school
