After graduating high school, Merci came in with a friend to witness a signing, and decided to join the TSPA family. “Cosmetology has always been a passion of mine. In high school I was an ‘average’ student, doing the minimum to get by. TSPA has very high expectations, and I wanted to hold myself to those higher standards.” She has certainly done that, reaching her goals each month. “With meeting my goals, it has given me the major confidence boost, and has broken me out of my shell, and urges me to achieve more.” With a few weeks left here at TSPA, Merci will graduate Level 4A. She still is in the midst of finding the right salon for her, and one that will help further her career goals.
