Cosmetology Student Success Story: Abryle Lopez

I was lost, and didn’t know what road to take. Then my roommate at the time suggested cosmetology school, and a few weeks later I was enrolled. I can’t believe that one of the worst things to happen in my professional life could turn into the most amazing career I could ever imagine.”
