It all started with a visit to Anderson. Read Giselle’s journey, written in her own words.
I came to Toronto with a dream; the dream of being able to work in my field, to be a professional, to feel important in what I had been trained for back home. When I registered at the college, I had a lot of expectations and fears at the same time: Will I able to do it? How will my teachers be? Am I going to pass my exams? But when I met my teacher on my first day, I felt everything was going to be fine and amazing; not easy, but great, and I felt the dream of being a successful Medical Esthetician was about to come true.
“I came to Toronto with a dream; the dream of being able to work in my field, to be a professional, to feel important in what I had been trained for back home.”
I still remember my first exam and my instructor repeating, “It’s not an exam, it’s a quiz – relax!” I was shaking as if the end of the world was coming, but I got a score of over 90/100! I was so happy, so excited after my first week of shaking, headaches and crying because it was not easy for me to take notes, study, and understand everything at once. All that stress and fear was still present during my final exam.
I remember when I saw a graduate with a red band, I asked my teacher what it signified. She answered that it was for graduates with honours, and I told her I was going to be one of them one day. Thanks to my teachers and my efforts, I achieved that goal, too! I want to thank them, my teachers, the administrators, my classmates, and my models for making my experience so wonderful.
Thank you, Anderson College, for making my dream come true: I am a Medical Esthetician now!
