Cosmetology Student Success Story: Jennifer Valenzo Delgado
For the month of October we showcased the accomplishment of one of our North Seattle campus’ future professionals, Ms. Jennifer Valenzo Delgado. Jennifer was honored as the digital marketing award winner for her utilization of social media as a business platform at which to display the beautiful work she does behind the chair.
About Jennifer Valenzo Delgado
As a lover of all things beauty Ms. Jennifer had initially sought out the Makeup Artistry program, where she was wanting to focus on building her skills in special occasion makeup. It was with the help of one of Evergreen’s admission counselors; Ms. Blair, that Jennifer decided to do the Cosmetology program. Ms. Jennifer is so thankful she made the decision to do hair as well, “Because I am able to provide makeup, and hair services my clients can have two people in one. Now when I do start my own business, I can freelance and be able to offer a well rounded service,” shares Jennifer.
Jennifer chose Evergeen to pursue her passions because “EBC has a goal, to challenge their students to be the best version of themselves.” Ms. Jennifer feels very connected to that mind-set, and identifies that kind of self-growth and development as one of her own personal goals. “For my school to align with that, means the world and lets me know that I can trust in them.”
The Evergreen Experience
Considering what sets her apart Ms. Jennifer feels it is her patience. “I feel most people lose patience when their clients aren’t on the same page during consultations or they’re not too sure what they want. I personally love consultations because I love being able to envision or see photos of what their goals are. Once we both are on the same page, its the best feeling. Knowing they’re trusting that you’ll help them get to their end result is my favorite,” shares Jennifer.
The Next Step
It is clear to see that Ms. Jennifer is a goal seeker, but beyond that fierce persistence is her sweet nature. It is in this sweet demeanor that she feels would be a reason people would seek to come back to her, or choose her over someone else. “I am a peoples person. I love connection. Not just the physical connection that can happen during a service, but I love getting to know my clients. I love connecting with my clients because I feel like it makes the customer service that much better.” Wanting to build that kind of connection and rapport beyond just her clients, Jennifer would like to see their kids and teens for services regularly as to watch them grow. Ms. Jennifer wants to have that trust in her clients, the kind of trust that translates into providing services to family members as well.
When asked for words of wisdom for any incoming future professional Ms. Jennifer shares “If you have a dream, don’t stay asleep. Life passes by very quickly, so if that dream is something you feel passionate about, wake up, and complete that goal. First step is to schedule an appointment at EBC, second step is to make it on time or early to your appointment, and before you know it you’re halfway done to having a career.”
Ms. Jennifer Valenzo Delgado is set to graduate April 2020.
