I gain more confidence and more skills about beauty; especially make-up has improved my self-confidence. I really enjoy every moment in our class. Our teachers are always there to guide us in everything, every step of what we do. Make-up class taught us the beauty we can create with our skill. Our teacher is the inspiration of our goal because she encourages us to bring creativity we have in our minds. She does her best to explain everything and help us grow in everything she teaches us. I’m very happy to be a student at TBL Academy.

      I have a deep-rooted and profound passion for assisting and supporting others, and witnessing their satisfaction brings immense joy to my heart. This genuine desire to make a positive impact on people's lives has led me to pursue a career as a beauty therapist. For me, being a beauty therapist is more than just a profession; it is a calling through which I can minister to individuals, providing them with not only beauty treatments but also a sense of rejuvenation, confidence, and well-being.

      As a beauty therapist, I have the opportunity to interact with a diverse range of people, each with their own unique stories, backgrounds, and needs. It is a privilege to be able to create a warm and welcoming environment where individuals can unwind, relax, and escape the stresses of their daily lives.

      Beyond the surface level, I firmly believe that beauty treatments have the power to touch people on a deeper level. When someone feels pampered and cared for during a treatment, it can uplift their spirits, alleviate their anxieties, and foster a sense of inner peace.
