Winning the Horst Rechelbacher Memorial Scholarship Contest

A couple of months ago, the Aveda Institute Columbus and the rest of the Nurtur Aveda Institutes held the 1st annual Horst Rechelbacher Memorial Scholarship. One winner was selected to win $10,000 toward their education at each of the Nurtur Aveda Institutes.  We’re so excited to announce that some of the winners will be guest blogging throughout the duration of their educational experience at the Aveda Institute. Today, we’re sharing Nikole Miranda’s winning scholarship essay with you:

I have always had admiration for people who chase their dreams and actually make them come true. Once I realized you have to drop kick the negative out of your life and look to the future, my eyes finally opened and I told myself I was going to be one of those people who make their dreams come true.

I remember walking into my first salon and thinking, “This is awesome! Where do I sign up?” Needless to say, a monster was created that day. From then on, my hairstyle, cut and color always changed – it is my heart and soul and makes me who I am.

For me, winning this competition would mean that I will be one step closer to making a life long dream of mine come true. Also, I want to win to show my beautiful daughter that hard work always pays off and to stay focused and follow your dreams.

As for the future, whether I win the scholarship or not, I will improvise, adapt and overcome all the obstacles that life throws at me. I feel that the Aveda Institute will give me all of the tools, training and opportunities to make that happen. I can be as successful as I want to be.
