Hi everyone:) My name is Nerissa Sudler, I am from the Philippines and has been now in the land of the free, home of the brave (USA:))for 10 years. I am happily married with my husband for 10 years, and he is currently pursuing a masters of divinity and is also helping me raise our 4 precious children, ages 7,5,3 and 7 months old. I have done a lot of different things for my career. I was a self employed for several years, helping families to be more financially educated, and become debt free and financially independent. Our career has changed from that time my husband felt a calling to serve in the ministry, while I stay home and take care of the kids, and also do some other self employment things. What got me started into thinking about going to make up academy was that one day while we were at the cancer center, I saw a note on the board stating services that volunteers and staff in the hospital does to help with the cancer patients as they battle their cancer. One of them is make up application. I immediately want to help and volunteer and was so excited. But then realizing, these people are probably more sensitive than people who aren't going through cancer treatments, I don't want to mess up their make up, and that stopped me from volunteering. With all the different things I've done in the workplace, none of them qualifies me to help these people put make up on, and I'm afraid that instead of helping them feel so good, I might just make them angry and more depressed. See, cancer has been in our family, my husband had it when he was a baby, and was in remission for 30 years, three of our kids had it, and now my husband has been diagnosed again with a cancer called leiomyosarcoma. So I know what life is like for these cancer patients, I know. Anyways, my husband had suggested to me to go back to school, even if it's make up, even if it's just to help me get better, and even to help these patients. So this is why I'm studying, to get better, to get knowledge so I can help these special people, everything else that comes with this is just an icing on the cake:):)
Thanks for reading,
Godbless and more power:)
