My experience at Milan Institute was so smooth and wonderful. I was scared and nervous at first. Then I met Ms. Sarah and Ms. Juli, that’s when I knew I made the right decision. They met my expectations and beyond. Ms. Juli has so much knowledge in the industry, it’s amazing. Not only did she teach us the curriculum, she shared with us her own knowledge and experiences as an Esthetician which are beyond advanced and amazing. There has never been a moment where I felt lost or confused, and if I did they were right there to guide me through. Ms. Sarah always had an answer to any of my questions. If I ever needed anything I knew I could count on her. The whole staff was amazing. I’m blessed to say I was able to open my own shop in Merced a week before I graduated. I am now very grateful for all my clients who put their trust in me. Not only was Milan Institute able to give me the knowledge as an Esthetician but it gave me knowledge to understand the beauty industry more. By studying anatomy and other subjects it helped me to be more knowledgeable and that opened doors to more opportunities that I will forever be grateful for.
