Success Stories: Vanessa

March 03, 2017

Intern Picture

When Vanessa first came to Ability Beyond Transition Services, she wanted careers in both fashion and in the makeup industry. After researching and touring a cosmetology school, she came to the realization that a formal education was not the best fit for her. Instead, she focused on drawing sketches with an eye towards designing her own line of clothing. One of our staff suggested that she create tutus and obtain help to sell them. After successfully creating some sample tutus, her Career Education Specialist helped her get a $300 grant for materials from Street Smart Ventures. Now Vanessa is on her way to building her small business!
