Lexie Pitts of Debutantes School of Cosmetology and Nail Technology in DeKalb, Illinois was a 2019 Rosy Rewards runner-up.
Pitts: I'm a licenced cosmetologist and educator-in-training. This summer, I'll be a licenced teacher.
I learned I can be anyone I choose; no title will dictate my destiny. To be my best self, I must occasionally be selfish. My dreams depend on me, therefore I can't quit.
Request assistance, Pitts. Opportunities abound, but they aren't always clear.
Also, concentrate. Events and tribulations may derail you, but you must stay focused.
Focus on your ambitions. You must be successful yourself. If you concentrate on success, you'll learn there's no end. Focusing will provide permanent success.
