Graduate Success Story: Brooke Vitatoe
At Keune Academy by 124, we’re always celebrating the successes of our students! We wanted to highlight one of our graduates who is now a full-time stylist in downtown Athens, Georgia. Learn more about her story to see yourself in the beauty industry!
A Little About Brooke
Brooke graduated from Keune Academy by 124 early January 2019 from our hair design program and got her license in May. She chose a school close to home, as she grew up in Lawrenceville, Georgia with her family. After graduation, she moved to Athens, Georgia after finding her career at PAGEBOY hair salon in downtown Athens for her new career.
Where Her Passion for Beauty Came From
Everyone has a different reason for entering beauty, and Brooke says she had a passion for hair since she was young. She knew it was something she aspired to do. As now that she’s part of the industry, her favorite part about working as a stylist is that she loves making people feel great about themselves everyday!
“Everyone should feel beautiful sitting in my chair.”
Thank you for taking such good care of each and every one of your guests, Brooke! We’re grateful to be a part of someone’s education who feels so passionate about helping others love their hairstyle.
Another aspect of the beauty industry Brooke loves is how much it is always growing. She says that it’s exciting to know there are always ways to educate yourself more with new trends and techniques!
Why Choose Keune Academy by 124?
When we asked her what helped her choose her beauty school, she told us that the biggest factors that helped her make the decision was the education and the positive feedback she had heard from former graduates.
After she attended, she did not regret her decision. On reflecting about her time at Keune Academy by 124, she told us:
“My biggest takeaway from Keune academy was not only the great foundation of my cosmetology education, but all of the great instructors I had from the moment I stepped into the school, they all want nothing but success for every single student in the building, and that is something I am proud to have been apart of.”
We love our instructors, too, and are so glad that they could share their passion with each and every student to help them feel confident in their future career.
