Yes, the nail specialty program at M-DCPS Technical Colleges is surprisingly amazing, but don’t just take our word for it, here’s a testimony from one of our graduates. Ms. Vania Jocelyn successfully completed the Nail Specialty program in December 2020.

Here is her story.

“I wanted to be my own boss and explore my creativity. I got tired of just working for someone and I was not happy doing that job, I wanted to make my own schedule and work when I wanted to. Taking this class was one of the best decisions I ever made. I found it to be fun and exciting. The instructor was extremely helpful, and resourceful, and always encouraged us to do our best. She took the extra time to work with us and let us know what mistakes we made and how we can alter them. She was also truly knowledgeable about the field which made me feel comfortable. I had no doubt that I was being taught the right way. Now that I have my license, I have the freedom to work when I want. I schedule appointments and work when I desire, that for me is the most rewarding.”
