What is the most important lesson you have learned from your parents or other adult in your life? Explain how this lesson has affected your life.
When I was still young, I used to do my friends’ hair as a hobby. Most of my friends liked the hair style that I did for them. I also remember how happy I was each time I did the hair of my friends. However, I never thought that this hobby could possibly turn into my dream career
One day, Son Kim, one of my older brother’s friends, invited me and my brother to her beauty studio in Seoul.
She is a very famous hair designer in Seoul and she has many Korean celebrity regular customers. When I visited her beauty studio for the first time I saw Hyori, a famous Korean celebrity. When she first entered the studio I hardly recognized her because of her messy hair. However, after Son Kim worked on her hair, she immediately transformed into the beautiful celebrity everyone knows.
The hair style Son Kim has done for Hyori was same style I saw on television. In addition, because Hori is so popular and because her hair style is always up to date, many young girls mimic her, especially her hair. Moreover, all of Hyori’s hair styles shown on television were the work of Son Kim’s.
After Hyori left, a customer from Australia came into studio also to get a hair cut. The customer seemed an acquaintance of Son Kim because she was delighted to see her. When they spoke with each other, I was amazed at Son Kim’s ability to speak English. I was later told by my brother that she had studied in Australia and obtained a Business Administration degree which is possibly one of the reasons her hair studio is doing so well.
Ever since I visited Son Kim’s hair studio I suddenly had a strong desire to become a famous hair designer who is intellectual and has a good aesthetic sense. I decided that Son Kim is truly a woman that I want to emulate when I grow up.
What goals do you have for your life after high school? How do you expect our school to help you achieve those goals?
After I graduate from high school, I want to become a highly adept hair designer. There are many different kinds of jobs in our society. Most people prefer to get white collar jobs such as a doctor, lawyer, or CPA. However, I disagree with people who believe that these jobs are the best jobs in life. For me, any job is the best for any person as long as it does not involve illegal activities and as long as he or she is passionate about it. In other words, a job becomes special to any person if he or she loves what he or she is doing. In my case, my passion would be about hair designing. I fully believe that if I work hard and become a very good fashion designer, I would consider it as the best job in the world.
Generally, I am the type of person who is introspective, which means I feel easily shy when I meet new people. Since hair designer jobs require meeting people, I believe that if I become a hair designer, my interpersonal skills would grow and I would be able to confidently communicate with a lot of people such as my customers. It is my dream to open my own shop in the US so I would have regular customers that are culturally diverse. However, to do that, I first have to know about American culture and the culture other countries and be able speak English fluently. In this connection, I believe that HCA is one of the best schools to learn about different cultures, religions and the English language. Given the school’s well-established reputation, I sincerely believe that it would no doubt help me attain my goal of becoming a highly successful hair designer who gives pleasure to customers by providing them with the best possible hair styles.
