PAINFULLY SHY CHILD BENEFITS FROM EXCEL COURSES AND GROWS UP TO SUCCEED IN THE WORLD OF HAIR & MAKE-UP

ABOUT TASHA WARRIOR-POPE

Tasha was always beautiful and tall, often getting told she should try modeling as young girl. Though the idea appealed to her, she was unable to even imagine pursuing it because was painfully shy and lacked confidence. Taking courses with EXCEL not only helped her overcome those struggled, but taught her the skills she has used to succeed working with hair & make-up.

YEARS AT EXCEL:

2017 – 2019

AREA OF INTEREST:

HAIR & MAKE-UP / MODELING

A Closer Look:

Tasha’s parents had begun to worry about their daughter. Her shyness was so severe that she would literally hide behind her mother1s skirt in social settings. While reading the newspaper one day, her father came across an ad about a program that could help boost confidence and equip students to EXCEL in life. His own battles with shyness motivated him to show it to his wife and they decided to give it a try.

They enrolled Tasha in EXCEL’s classes and hoped for the best.

How EXCEL Academy makes a difference:

Fast forward a few EXCEL classes later and Tasha’s parents were completely blown away when they proudly watched their previously timid daughter confidently walk a runway with her shoulders back and confidence.

They had always longed or her to recognize how much she has to offer and EXCEL helped her not only over come shyness, but gain the confidence to pursue her dreams, which started with modeling and then extended to hair and make-up.

” What I learned at 12 years old, I still use today as a plus size model for companies like Dillards and Walmart. I walk in a room and I know what to say and do to set myself apart from the crowd. ”
