My name is Taylor, and I’m a 22-year-old college student. After graduating high school in 2012 and receiving my cosmetology license that same year, I decided to take some time off for my health. During that time off I had multiple surgeries before returning back to school in 2013. I am currently studying for my Bachelor’s degree in Sports Marketing. My main goal was to save money for the extra training that was needed to start my own beauty business and supplement my income. The opportunity to work for myself as a makeup artist would give me flexibility while in school. However, less than two months ago I had to undergo another surgery, prompting a long time away from work. I have been laid off, and I had to spend all of my savings on bills that have pilled up and past due tuition. I am not looking for a handout, rather the opportunity to stand on my own two feet as the businesswoman that I know I can be. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated!
