"I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed attending Kosmetae. I knew right from the beginning I was going to love it. I walked into the school with my head down and walked out with my head high. I felt confident of what I had learned. Two weeks after I was finished I had a job lined up for myself. I went in and knew I could work and be confident in what I knew."
