Hello, my name is Sarah Rak, I am 18 years old. My main short term goal is to graduate high school and learn how to be an adult and be on my own. I do not plan on going straight to college after high school, but I do hope to go soon in the future. I have no idea what I want to be when I grow up and its terrifying realizing my teenage years are about to be over and I am going to be an adult. In the beginning I thought I wanted to be a cosmetologist and that is why I did my project on different hairstyles for women, but after working on my senior project, I have realized hair is not for me.
In my research paper, I discussed how there are tons of chemicals in shampoos and conditioners and other hair products people use on a daily basis. I researched what chemicals were in some of the products and what it did to people’s hair. I learned that people should not be using shampoos and conditioners as much as they do. I also learned people should research what chemicals they are actually putting in their hair and what it does to it. Most of the time people do not even know that what is put in hair products, can easily damage their hair.
My product is a hairstyle that I learned how to do. It is not much, but I practiced on my hair and other people’s hair to help me find the best hairstyle for my finished product. My product relates to my research paper because I knew what not to use for hair products. It helped me know how to protect my hair and other people’s hair while styling it. The most difficult problem with my product was figuring out which hairstyle I wanted to use. Also, it was difficult to find people to practice on. My main concern was deciding if I wanted to work on a mannequin doll head or a person.
My topic and research relates to a cosmetologist career. I learned about myself that this career is not suitable for me. I love styling hair as a hobby, but I do not think I would have the desire to be a cosmetologist. This project helped me realize this and I am so grateful to be able to know not to go in the wrong path. Although I am not sure what I am going to be doing in the future, it is a good thing I will not pursue the wrong career.
For me, this product has helped me decide what career path I should not take. It made me realize that cosmetology is not the way I should be going. Even though I do not want to be a cosmetologist, I still enjoyed meeting up with my facilitator and watching what it’s like to work in a salon. It was a new experience for me and without that experience, I don’t think I would have the same decisions that I have made. Thank you so much for your time and being here today.
